VISTA Nicole Owens Educates Students about Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence

Nicole Owens 2The incoming freshmen class at the University of North Texas (UNT) is no longer in the dark about sexual assault and domestic violence after AmeriCorps VISTA, Nicole Owens, at Denton County Friends of the Family, set up an interactive table at the Dean of Students After Dark event during freshmen orientation. There have been five After Dark events in June- one for each freshmen orientation- and there will be two more events in July. The entire incoming freshmen class will have the opportunity to learn about Denton County Friends of the Family and even test their knowledge with a short true/false quiz created by Nicole. Classes may not start for a few more weeks, but the incoming freshmen have shown their skills by excelling at the sexual assault and domestic violence centered quizzes. More than 40 incoming freshmen have expressed interest in volunteering and hundreds have stopped by to ask questions and learn more about Friends of the Family.
