Sexual Assault On WIU Campus-How To Protect Yourself From Assault

A sexual assault occurred near the dormitory in the Western Illinois University campus recently at about 2 AM.

University officials are reminding students who live in dormitories and apartments on campus and apartments off-campus to be more vigilant. They put out the following reminders:

“Walk in groups whenever possible.
Be aware of your surroundings.
Travel in populated, well-lit areas.
Use Go West, the University’s transit system, or the OPS escort service.
Trust your instincts and use good judgment.
Use common sense. Avoid being alone or with someone you do not know.
Communicate to others where you are going and with whom.”

They also suggest carrying some kind of defensive spray such as one of our 79 Keychain Pepper Sprays. They can all protect you but one of them will be just right for your situation.
