The student affairs staff, along with other campus programming organizations, sponsors several educational programs each term. Recent programs concerned with security and safety have addressed the topics of self-defense, rape and acquaintance-rape (date-rape) prevention, AIDS, alcohol awareness and the College alcohol policy, legal liability, and fraternity and sorority pledging activities. Most of these programs have been repeated for general audiences or specific residence-hall groups. Most programs involve an informed presentation followed by questions and discussion. Residence-hall staff members also are encouraged to schedule educational programs on security and safety for the residents of their floor.
