Pasqua effectively connects high-risk drinking to unprotected sex through captivating interactive exercises that get students out of their seats and engage them in real-life situations. The consequences of unprotected sex, as well as safe sex and healthy communication are discussed with honesty and humor. She clearly establishes the relationship of alcohol to sexual assault and warns of the use of date rape drugs. This dynamic program strives to create a safe and healthy campus environment.

Also in April, Penn State Greater Allegheny will offer a program in partnership with the Center for Victims of Violent Crimes in Pittsburgh. More details will follow.
