    General safety tips

    Don't jog or go places alone at night. If you're going to be on campus alone at night call a Corps Escort to walk you to your dorm or your car.

    At parties, make your own drinks and don't set them down. Don't drink anything that has been out of your sight.

    Keep your cell phone with you if you have one and lock house and car doors when you are alone.

    Keep alert when walking and keep your hands free.

    Consider learning self-defense.


    Date Rape Prevention

    Examine your feelings about sex and set limits for yourself before the date.

    Don't give mixed messages; be firm and forceful.

    Be aware that alcohol and drugs are often related to date rape.
