As high school students graduate, the Family Resource Center (FRC) wants to ensure that those attending college have a safe, healthy and memorable experience.

The FRC will host “College Bound 101: Campus Secrets” on May 29, 6 to 8 p.m. at the Robert Mills Courthouse for rising seniors, graduating seniors and their parents.

“Sexual assault on college campuses is a serious issue that is not addressed enough. I want to do my part by spreading awareness to as many students as I can,” FRC staff member and presenter Russell B. McCray said.

The event will educate about sexual violence on college campuses, the prevalence of it and provide attendees with pivotal information surrounding this issue.

“Freshman year is a time when students are easily targeted as victims of sexual violence, which is why it is vital for teens to be educated on this issue prior to attending college,” FRC staff member Sheila Farrar said.

The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) reports that college-age adults are at higher risk for sexual violence than other adults. Learning about risk factors can keep students safe.

“According to RAINN, college women are twice as likely to be sexually assaulted than robbed and this needs to be addressed,” FRC staff member Ellen Baker said.

Those attending do not have to register prior to the event. For more information, contact the FRC at (803) 425-4357.
