In the midst of movements such as #metoo and #timesup, students at Rhodes and OSU Lima are sitting down and having the important conversation about consent and sexual misconduct. Nicole Fairburn, the campus survivor advocate for crime victims services says, "Its especially important on college campuses because we know that sexual violence is at an increased rate when it comes to students so we really want to highlight what healthy sexuality means and what consent means."

Not only is the goal of the event to talk openly about consent, but to change the conversation and how we often address consent. According to Fairburn, "Changing the conversation to "yes means yes" and having that conversation of body language and verbal affirmations of consent is really important. If someone is silent or not screaming no, it doesn't mean they're saying yes, consent is not the lack of saying no."
As for keeping the conversation open in the future, students say they are hopeful.

Dalton Faulder, a student and member of the campus activity board says,"A lot of kids are too busy "partying" for lack of a better term and they get too excited and they do things that they end up regretting. They have to know what they're doing has consequences so by raising awareness for consent maybe they'll think about things before they act."
