Campus Events Slated in October for 'Wipe Out Domestic Violence' Month


Intimate partner violence occurs in 1 out of every 5 dating relationships in college. October is “Wipe Out Domestic Violence” Month at JSU. Several events will take place that will raise awareness of violence in dating relationships.

During the entire month, there will be a paper product drive benefiting 2nd Chance, Inc. Items to be donated for the drive include: baby wipes, cleaning wipes, facial tissue, toilet paper, paper towels, and Kleenex.
