For some students, the sole reason to attend higher education is to socialize and party. For others, partying is an outlet to let go of the day-to-day stress that follows academia. No matter how students choose to balance work and pleasure, it’s important to prioritize health and safety, especially when campuses are in “The Red Zone” part of the academic year. “The Red Zone” is the time period beginning each fall when students start to arrive on campus and lasts until Thanksgiving break. About 50% of sexual assaults occur on college campuses during this time, according to the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments.
