Alcohol is a very powerful drug that can have an influence over your behavior and your ability to make rational decisions.
Unfortunately, there are people who will take advantage of these situations and alcohol only impairs your ability to recognize these predators. 97,000 (2%) of college students have reported being the victims of alcohol-related sexual assault or date rape.
If you are a victim of sexual assault or date rape you should report it to the police. Also, when you know you will be out having drinks make sure to keep a watchful on your drink at all times. Also make sure you have a designated driver and someone to help you get home safely.
