Student-Athletes, Fraternity Help ‘Take Back the Night’

Thursday’s “Take Back the Night” event in Rose Street Commons, part of Penn College’s observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April, drew survivors and supporters alike into a single-minded alliance against sexual violence. Kacie G. Hopkins, YWCA Northcentral Pennsylvania’s community educator/shelter advocate, attended the event, which was followed by “Glowga” (glow-in-the-dark yoga), at which donations of money and personal-care items were accepted for the YWCA’s Wise Options program. The Wildcat women’s softball and soccer teams were on hand and took part in Glowga, along with Phi Mu Delta. “Having the teams and fraternity participate was a great addition to the evening,” said Mallory L. Weymer, coordinator of student health and wellness education/suicide prevention specialist, “and really showed their organization’s commitment to the safety and well-being of our Penn College community.”
