Stalking Awareness: Myth vs. Reality

MYTH: Most stalking victims are stalked by a stranger. REALITY: Most victims are stalked by someone they know. Intimate partner stalking is the most common type of stalking, and the most dangerous. As National Stalking Awareness Month draws to a close, SAVE Taskforce would like to thank everyone who joined our efforts to debunk common and dangerous myths about stalking. Thanks to everyone who participated in Jeans Day.  The Jacksonville Activities Board raised $225 for Sojourn Shelter and Services to help them continue offering services for victims of stalking and domestic violence.

REGISTRATION PROMOTION EVENT – On Monday, Oct. 24, we are holding a theme day to promote registration.  The theme is REGISTRATION REV UP (think NASCAR) and we would love to have you all involved.  While there is no official prize, bragging rights can go to the area that most embraces the theme!

Each team will pick a color and be the “PIT CREW” for their department.  All of the staff in the department will dress in the chosen color of their crew.  Those that have already claimed colors:

  • Financial Aid – blue
  • Admission, Records & Registration – red
  • Placement & Testing  – green

If your team is going to participate, contact Shanda Byer with your theme color and she will supply you with PIT PASS name badges.

Enrollment Services will decorate the hallway with racing themed decor.
Each department can decorate their area as they see fit.

The best part is that for those who are participating, it is a jeans day! Departments should check with their supervisor for approval. So, let’s ramp up the enthusiasm and have fun with this theme!
