Armstrong says incoming college freshmen can reduce their risk of campus sexual assault

a PSC In The News reference

"The Science of Preventing Sexual Assaults on College Campuses" - Live Science. 07/05/2016.

Some recent studies suggest a heightened risk for sexual assault among first-year college students in their initial weeks or months on campus. A 2015 U-M report found that 20% of undergraduate women reported nonconsensual sexual behavior. Elizabeth Armstrong says this risk varies from campus to campus, but that freshman women, in particularly, can reduce this risk by watching out for one another and avoiding 'superdrunk' situations.
