Protection & Safety Tips for College Girls
Take a self defense class
Most colleges offer some type of self defense classes, especially for women. If your school does not offer such classes, get in touch with the student government or campus activities and ask why they do not provide it. These classes are typically free, and sometimes can be taken for college credit. These classes are usually the best way to understand how to defend yourself, and can be empowering to know you can do so if you had to.
College girls should have protection
Some colleges and universities are in “the bad part” of town, and college girls need to look out for more than just college guys. All college girls should have some type of protection on them at all times. Good examples of protection include pepper spray (or mace), or a tazer. Both of these are non-lethal ways to take down a potential attacker and get away. College girls should practice using pepper spray or tazers (stun guns) as instructed on the instructions.
College girls should avoid dangerous situations
Avoiding dangerous situations is the easiest way to stay safe. Always traveling with friends always helps, but also being aware of your surroundings is key. If you feel you are being followed try to get to a safe location as quick as possible. If you are alone don’t stop to talk to a stranger if you don’t feel comfortable. Try to walk and stay in highly lit areas at night, and always stay within view of other people. Avoid shortcuts through alley’s because it could be a prime place to get attacked.
What college girls should do in dangerous situations
If a college girl still ends up in a dangerous situation it is important to know what to do. If you are confronted always have a plan to get out safe. Get on your cell phone with someone you trust and tell them where you are and what is happening, if necessary tell them to call the police. If you can’t get a hold of someone, and you do not feel safe, dial 9 and 1, and keep your finger on the one button – If something happens hit the one and yell out where you are and what is happening. If someone tries to steal your car, throw the keys far away from the car and run the opposite direction, this will help save you from being kidnapped. If someone attacks you, don’t yell help, yell fire! In any situation where someone asks for your wallet or purse, throw it over them and run away as fast as possible. If you are attacked and you have pepper spray or a tazer, use it!
