Students might remember hearing about SAPA when they attended the mandatory “No Zebras” presentation during their first weekend at Central Michigan University their freshmen year.
The month of January was stalking awareness month and during January, SAPA ran a number of programs around campus educating students about stalking.
Most people view stalking as far fetched, but the thing is, it could very easily happen to anyone.
Stalking is serious, yet it is constantly joked about or romanticized. A huge example would be the terms, “Facebook stalking” or “Instagram stalking”. These terms might seem harmless, but you have no idea what affect it could have on someone who has been or is going through a stalking situation.
There are steps to take if you are being stalked or if you know someone who is.
SAPA also has a safe room available.
You can contact SAPA through their phone number 989-774-2255. (2417 crisis line)
