One of the main resources on campus is the Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center (SARC), found in the Student Health Service Building. It provides a safe and confidential space for OSU students, faculty and staff affected by different forms of violence, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. OSU officials said people can get help learning about their rights and options, safety planning, as well as referrals to on and off-campus resources.

KEZI 9 News spoke to student Christine Warrin, who said she’s grateful for SARC and the university’s efforts to keep them safe.

"Stay strong, and there's always people to help you, and it's better to reach out even though I know it's very hard to do," Warrin said.

SARC is open Monday through Friday for walk-in appointments from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Officials said they also have a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, Counseling and Psychological Services and a campus police department committed to keeping the community safe around the clock.
