College students are gearing up to return to campus, with tens of thousands arriving for the first time. New classes, friends, environments and routines await. But something else also comes along with back-to-school on college campuses – and it's what's known as "The Red Zone," the period of time between the first day students arrive on campus through Thanksgiving break. Research has revealed this is when 50% of sexual assaults on campuses occur. College freshmen or incoming transfer students are particularly vulnerable to assault, given their naïveté when it comes to partying. While opinions differ on "The Red Zone" and whether it's best to emphasize its importance – other research has questioned the importance of this time frame – experts agree more needs to be done to educate all those on college campuses about sexual assault and consent.
