Notes from our Loyd Peer Leaders

From Your Peer Health Educator – Carlyle Reid

What’s in your drink?

date rape

20% of college students have been sexually assaulted. Although this seems scary, it is very easy to avoid. One way that many students are sexually assaulted is by being “date-raped.” To help avoid being another statistics, here are some tips:

  • When you go to ANY event and have an open drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), keep one hand over the top when you are not drinking it.
  • You do not know who might be trying to “slip something” in your drink. Although the situation may seem safe, there can be danger. Watch yourself, and have a friend whom you trust and know well to help you out when you begin to feel strange.
  • If you start feeling strange after consuming none or a small amount of alcohol, immediately get help, by calling SMU PD (There will be no penalty if you or a friend has been drinking alcohol). When you notice a friend acting strange after consuming little or no alcohol, call SMU PD.
  • Seeing someone put an unknown substance into another’s drink without consent, and not telling the other person, is illegal. Tell them, even if you do not know the person.
