Women At Risk – College Campus Safety
Young women are heading back to college this month and for some this will be their first time away from home. If you are one who will be going off to college soon, be vigilant about your personal safety and take some steps to ensure your safety and security while at school.
One of the things you can do is take an on-campus RAD Self-Defense Training Class. This class will provide some basic self-defense tips while teaching young women self-defense techniques and tactics to protect and defense themselves against an attacker. Check with your university/college and sign up!!
More and more we hear in the news about young women who are sexually assaulted, raped, and even murdered on or around college campuses. As we send our young adults off to college, be sure to arm them with safety knowledge and safety awareness of how to protect themselves.
There may be situations on campus where you find yourself in potentially vulnerable situations – walking to a late night class alone, jogging by yourself along deserted pathways, parking in poorly lit garages or parking lots, or just being unaware of the dangers around you.
Campus Safety for College Students and Educators:
Self-Defense Knowledge and Awareness to Staying Safe
There are ways for you to stay safe on campus. As previously mentioned, most universities and college campus’ offer self-defense classes such as RAD Self-Defense. This type of training can give you a tremendous sense of confidence and self-empowerment.
You can also use campus protection or security services; always stay with others in a group-especially late at night; stay in control when drinking and partying with others; and carry some type of self-protection device such as pepper spray or mace, a personal alarm, or a TASER C2. (These are all non-lethal protection devices). Being armed with both mental and physical awareness along with some type of personal protection device could ultimately save your life if attacked or assaulted!
