At DePaul, we are required to complete two online modules called AlcoholEdu and Haven, which teach about safe drinking and sexual assault prevention respectively. I completed them and paid full attention to them knowing that they were teaching me useful information; however, when the subject came up, my friends and roommates all said "oh, I just clicked through those. I didn't even read them." No wonder so many sexual assaults happen at DePaul. In addition, I personally know five people here who have drank themselves into the hospital, and I am only on the second quarter of my freshman year. As far as criminal activity goes, DePaul has its own public safety number and blue buttons on every block of the campus that students can press during an emergency if their phone isn't on them. Although the idea of going to school in Chicago may frighten some people, Lincoln Park is one of the safest areas of the city and has a very low crime rate. Not that I would recommend walking outside alone at night, but if you did, nothing would happen probably. One thing I have to say, though, is do not take the train by yourself at night!
