 Tips for keeping safe:  

  • Recognize that your sexual needs do not give you the right to do whatever you want. Any sexual activity should be mutually desired. 

  • Be careful when inviting someone into your room or apartment or when going into someone else's room or apartment. This is where most sexual assaults occur. 

  • Trust your instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable in a situation, leave. 

  • Do not hesitate to call Police if you feel you are in an uncomfortable
      situation.
     

 Notification of a serious crime to the campus community is required by federal law.
