      Last night I received an email from a very upset and angry college student form Gettysburg College. Their campus was torn apart last week when New Jersey freshman, Emily Silverstein was murdered by her ex-boyfriend senior Kevin Schaeffer.

      It brough me right back to my freshman year at Lehigh. The previous year, Jeane Cleary was brutally murdered by another Lehigh student.

      The following year, self defense and campus awareness was on everybody’s mind. This culmination was the “Cleary Act”.

      The “Clery Act” is named in memory of 19 year old Lehigh University freshman Jeanne Clery who was raped and murdered while asleep in her residence hall room on April 5, 1986.

      Jeanne’s parents, Connie and Howard, discovered that students hadn’t been told about 38 violent crimes on the Lehigh campus in the three years before her murder. They joined with other campus crime victims and persuaded Congress to enact this law, which was originally known as the “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.”

      Recently we were contacted by students of Gettyburg to implement a Self Defense and Awareness program. We’ll keep you posted on the progress. … t_cha.html
