Proudly standing about half way down the list is our very own Michigan State University. If you haven't viewed the extensive and not-so-shiny national review of MSU's sexual assault response and policy system, it's a solid wake-up call. MSU's scores came back almost as low as the temperature on this unpleasant November afternoon. However, this glorious campus (sorry, biased) has responded with motivation and promise. This past week, November 9-14, was MSU's "It's On Us" Action Week. This week long action movement was hosted by MSU's Associated Students of Michigan State University organization (ASMSU). Everyday during the week students were signing the pledge to join the "It's On Us" campaign against campus and nation-wide sexual assault. On top of that, organizations, campus groups, and Greek chapters campus-wide were vocalizing and demonstrating their support for this campaign. Numerous activities also be popped up all around campus during the entirety of the week-long movement. If you would like to know more about MSU's stride towards a safer and better campus, you can read the article on The State News page: http://statenews.com/article/2015/11/asmsu-itsonus-week-of-action .
This campaign is just the beginning of a potentially nation-wide eradication of college and university sexual assault. It's time to take a stand and take action to save those 1 in 5 college women.
