As members of Residential Life and Housing, it is crucial to be able to support residents through every step of their college journey, whether that step may be picking classes, meeting friends, handling homesickness, or the myriad of other transitions college students have to undergo. Unfortunately, one of those transitions that many students at Emory have to go through, often times alone, is becoming a survivor of sexual assault and rape. Emory statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 33 men have been sexually assaulted while in college, and seven rapes have been reported already, this year alone. Obviously, students are in dire need of sexual assault support, and ResLife members are often to most accessible peer figures for survivors to reach out to.
