Two events were recently held on campus, highlighting safe driving practices and offering self-defense techniques. The Office of Community Life and Athletics Department hosted a Distracted Driver Simulator test vehicle, simulating the dangers of texting and driving while sitting in a car. SSC, Inc. and the Office of Safety and Security partnered with the Office of Community Life by participating in the prize pool, by donating ten $10.00 Dunkin Donuts gift cards for a participants drawing.

The Office of Safety and Security and Athletics Department also partnered with Quincy Police to host a “Women’s Self-Defense and Defensive Tactics Class” on October 20 and 21. The event was open to members of the Quincy community.
