Tip #28 – Helping a Friend in Need: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/28/11

A friend who’s been raped may confide in you after the attack (sometimes years after).  When someone tells you they’ve been sexually assaulted simply listen quietly and let the person express her/his feelings.  And, don’t ask probing or judgmental questions like “Why did you leave the party with someone you didn’t know?”  Remember it’s not the victim’s fault, even if they did something “stupid” that… Continue

Tip #27 – If You’ve Been Assaulted, Get Help: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/27/11

Despite all your awareness, alertness and the other skills that have been proven to maximize safety, there’s no surefire way to prevent a crime.  If you’ve been raped, go immediately to a hospital emergency room (ideally with a friend) for an examination.  Going to a hospital doesn’t mean you have to report the crime to the police; they’ll keep everything…

Tip #26 – Resisting Sexual Assault: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/26/11

Most rapes involve someone known to the victim, so consider these hard questions beforehand to help you act decisively, if necessary.  Under what circumstance(s) would physical resistance be called for?  Could I hurt someone I know and trust, if he was trying to assault me?  Could I treat a boyfriend or good friend who was trying to rape or assault me the same as I would treat a stranger? 

Physical resistance is…

Tip #24 – Set Clear Boundaries: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/24/11

Communicate clearly  about how you want AND expect to be treated…and this applies to both girls and boys.  Acting sorry or unsure sends mixed messages and it can be difficult to know how a person feels without hearing it, assertively, from them.  Tell your date/partner what you want or don’t want and stick with your decisions.  Listen carefully and if you feel you’re getting mixed messages, ask for clarification…

Tip #22 – Date Rape Drugs: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/22/11

Sometimes the bad guys put substances in the punch bowl or into a drink at a party, bar or club to make a the target of a sexual assault dazed, confused and unable to resist.  These are called date rape drugs and they can be odorless, colorless and tasteless, so you might not know if something has been added to your drink.  They can also be very dangerous.…

Tip #19 – Watch Out for Each Other: Campus Safety Awareness Month 9/19/11

If it’s just you and the gurls (or guys) going out on the town, make a pact to watch out for each other, so no one wakes up with regrets the morning after.  Come up with a sign or signal for when you should intervene if someone is in an uncomfortable situation and don’t be afraid to speak up or step in and investigate if a situation seems questionable to you.  By getting involved…
