There really is no way to describe what it is like to be harassed in an institutional environment, to people that have never really been through it. There is a difference between a little messing with, healthy competitiveness and serious harassment. It can be overwhelming, and because of the very specific rules inherent to institutional environments imposed by the state and federal governments, and the additional regulations implemented by the individual institutions themselves, knowing exactly how to deal with such occurrences can be mind boggling. If you intend to stay within that institution and not develop an institutional reputation that follows you from place to place, you need to deal with it appropriately in such a way that it stops and affects your position minimally if at all. It seems as if it might be easy at first and for some it may be, but that is not always the case. This is people we're talking about, after all.
