Take Back The Night

This week, Ohio University gives back to the community with Take Back the Night; a week long series of events dedicated sexual education, safety and empowerment. Take Back the Night is a long-standing tradition at Ohio University, now on its 35th year of occurrence. Because sexual assault can happen to anyone, these events are open for all genders to attend.
