Domestic/Dating Violence Awareness Month Pumpkin Painting

October 17th - 12:00 to 1:30
Student Lounge - SUB

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. College-aged women (between 16-24) have the highest per capita rate of intimate partner violence. 21% of college students report having experienced dating violence by a current partner, and 32% of college students report experiencing dating violence by a previous partner. Peer pressure, the presence of drugs and alcohol, stressful schedules, tight-knit friend groups, and social media contribute to higher rates of abuse, sexual assault, and stalking for students. Young people also have limited relationship experience, and often if a high school relationship was at all violent or unhealthy, it is likely that future college relationships will be unhealthy too.

Join the ISU Gender Resource Center and Family Services Alliance in painting pumpkins to bring awareness to this important topic. Family Service Alliance will have resources and information available for attendees.
