Is it OK to go out with your college female graduate assistant?

Most colleges strongly advise against or even prohibit relationships between students and graduate assistants. Not only is there a power differential between the two parties involved, meaning that one party controls things such as grades which can unfairly be raised or lowered because of the relationship, but these relationships can also verge on sexual harassment. In any case, schools that allow such relationships usually require that 1) the relationship be made public (usually, by telling the boss, such as the grad assistant's supervisor) and 2) the person with power gives up their power (such as the grad assistant no longer supervising you).
