Theft from Residence Rooms

We have been experiencing an increase of theft from residence rooms on campus. Victims reported that either they closed their door, but did not lock it or left their door open as they were just down the hall.

Please remember to LOCK your residence room door when you are not in your room.  Just shutting the door behind you is not enough.  Some victims were only away from their room for 10 minutes when the theft occurred.

R.A.D Program

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women.  This program is available to all university community members. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance. Although reducing a woman’s risk is 90% of self defense the R.A.D. System progresses into basic hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. The self-defense tactics taught in R.A.D. are made up of techniques which are easy to learn, remember and use. This system provides women with the knowledge and hands-on training needed to make an informed decision about self-defense. The R.A.D. System is currently taught at over 250 colleges and universities in North America and is the largest women’s self defense program of it’s kind. R.A.D. System has a lifetime return and practice for free policy, which applies to every graduate of the course. Once a participant has completed the Basic course, that student may attend any R.A.D. Basic class offered anywhere in North America for free.
