Tips to be a WatchDawg
- Watch out for your friends and fellow Dawgs! If you see someone who looks like they need help, step up and do something!
- Have a safety plan in place and use the buddy system with friends.
- Confront friends who make excuses for inappropriate behavior. Even small things such as comments, jokes, media, or music lyrics promote a culture of violence and disrespect. Sometimes all it takes is a look!
- Know the signs of alcohol poisoning.
