Ole Miss Increases Awareness of "Date-Rape"

The University of Mississippi is striving to bring drug-facilitated sexual assault out in the open. More commonly known as "date-rape," drug-facilitated sexual assault has been kept quiet around the United States, especially on college campuses. In order to ensure victims help is available the Office of Health Promotions is increasing the awareness of "date-rape."

The University is stressing to all students and faculty members that sexual intercourse without consent is considered to be rape. Consent must be mutual through words or actions that indicate and agreement to engage in sexual activities.

So far the campaign has been successful. Information on the attempt to raise awareness has even made the front page of the Daily Mississippian.
