September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month, but many co-eds haven’t felt so secure lately. The recent murder of 24-year-old pharmacology student, Annie Le, at Yale University has shocked the nation. America had been watching for days as the search for Annie took place, which many hoped was due to ‘cold feet’ in anticipation of her upcoming nuptials. But sadly, her body was discovered this past Sunday, which was supposed to be her wedding day. The layers of tragedy seem endless, and my heart goes out to Annie’s family.
When campus crimes like this make national news, I get a flood of emails from concerned parents of college students. The query is usually the same: “How can I keep my child safe while on campus?” To answer this question, I pulled together my favorite campus safety tips and created a FREE campus safety fact sheet. (Click here to view the e-news and download the PDF) In observance of National Campus Safety Awareness Month, will you please forward it to anyone attending college or who loves a college student? Feel free to make copies and distribute widely!
My advice to parents and students alike is to start a conversation about campus safety. As a guide, check out my book: Girls Fight Back! The College Girl’s Guide to Protecting Herself. It’s the only book out there just for young women on campus, and I hope it helps female co-eds avoid bad situations…and fight back if necessary. Get FREE SHIPPING ON BOOKS if you order by 5 pm EST tomorrow (Friday). We can ship directly to your favorite college girl as a back-to-school gift, and all books will be autographed by me.

And in case you were wondering, I finally gave birth! On August 18, 2009 we welcomed a baby boy named Miles Patrick into the world. He was 8 lbs, 4 oz and 22 inches long. I finally understand the amazing, protective, unconditional love that only parents can have for their kids…
Strong. Resilient. Spirited. Unified.
