If you are a survivor of sexual assault or trauma, you can also seek on-campus help. Visit the Sexual Assault Resources page on the Student Health & Wellness Center site. A sexual assault, whether by a stranger or an acquaintance, can be very frightening and disorienting. It happens to all people regardless of sexual orientation or sexual identification. If you have been sexually assaulted or raped it is important to remember that it is not your fault and that you have the right to receive assistance from people who will believe you and help you in your recovery.
