They’re the predators; you’re the prey

Throughout April, the counseling center has tried to spread awareness about rape and sexual assaults with signs all over campus. Some of the numbers presented should be enough to scare most people into being cautious but, then again, I don’t think being aware of the danger is the problem these days.
