Western’s sexual assault prevention program is up for renewal — does the online training do more harm than good?

Sitting at their laptop, a Western Washington University student goes through the first module in the program entitled, “Sexual [Assault] Prevention Ongoing: Taking Action.” They move from page to page, exploring what the course contains, with definitions of sexual misconduct, a pre-course quiz and pages titled “Recognizing the Problem,” and “Microaggressions.”

University Police prepare to adopt new accountability measures

A Western Washington University student has to cross campus in the middle of the night and feels unsafe. The old, Blue Light Alert phones are nowhere to be seen, so they reach out to the university police on a newly installed safety app. Promptly, a campus police officer with the dim light glinting on the lens of their body camera comes to the student’s location and walks them safely across campus. This could be the future of policing on Western’s campus.

Dating during the pandemic

“Many people, especially right now, are really eager to connect. [Talking to people] is welcome,” she said. Boyd said that the anxiety of meeting a date in person is often self imposed, and there’s an idea that every encounter is either a success or a failure. Stepping out of the right-versus-wrong mindset and focusing on having fun is key to dating success, Boyd said.

Lawnstock is back — with a few small changes

Lawnstock, Western's outdoor spring festival, will bring students together on the Communications Facility lawn and listen to live music while enjoying free food, games and other activities. There won’t be live musical performers as the pandemic winds down, but KUGS 89.3 FM Radio will provide a livestream, and games like cornhole and other activities will be provided along with squared off areas for students to gather with their small group of friends on campus.
