Another woman who says she was raped while a student at Baylor University is suing the Baptist college.

Conroe attorney Wayne Little is filing a lawsuit in Waco on Monday on behalf of the former student. Eyewitness News has obtained a copy of the lawsuit.

The petition states the then-sophomore went to a party at the "rugby house" in spring 2015 and was drugged, taken somewhere else and raped.

The suit claims Baylor violated Federal Title IX anti-gender discrimination regulations which fostered a "hostile environment" before the alleged rape and "an unreasonable response" after.

"At this point she wants Baylor to be held accountable," said Little.

Baylor is already under fire for mishandling other allegations of sexual assault including cases involving football players costing head coach Art Briles his job.

Earlier this week, three other alleged rape victims filed a similar lawsuit against the university.

A Baylor spokeswoman has not responded to a request for comment. The university has said it's committed to making changes.

Little says his client was so traumatized, she had to withdraw from the school, giving up her dream of a Baylor degree.

"It's a huge toll on her. She's back home. She's working as a nanny for a kid with Down syndrome and going to school near her home," he added.
