Back to Campus

Off to Campus

Okay, admittedly it’s a mixed blessing.

Your teenager is finally finished high school, is excited about the pretty, new diploma and enamored with the idea of headed off to campus to start the next chapter in life and begin the entry  into

adulthood; truly a wonderful time for parent and child alike.

But there are other considerations.


Okay, admittedly it’s a  mixed blessing.

Sexual Assault

The college campus. A place for many of us containing great memories of wonderful friendships and experiences is also a place which brings back the memory of assault, attack and rape for far too many.

According to RAINN  sexual violence on campus is pervasive. Among undergraduate students, 23.1% of females and 5.4% of males experience rape or sexual assault through physical force, violence, or incapacitation. Male college-aged students (18-24) are 78% more likely than non-students of the same age to be a victim of rape or sexual assault.

Other Violent Crimes

These statistics don’t include the other types of crimes they face!

According to College Parents of America Students aged 18 to 24 report about 526,000 violent crimes each year, according to the Violent Victimization of College Students report. Of those, 128,000 “involved a weapon or serious injury to the victim.”

In addition, between 2010 and 2017,  in the U.S. alone there have been over 40 campus attacks with the intention of committing mass mayhem, which resulted in over 150 casualties and over 50 deaths!

Are Our Children Really Prepared for College Life (and Death)?

As parents we have spent the last 18 years preparing our children for college. We have ensured they participated in group activities, sports, debate, Junior Achievers, Forensics, 4H and more. All this so they would develop a well rounded education and advanced social skills.

We have sent them to camps and hired tutors. We have provided books, laptops, tablets and cell phones so the information of the world was at their fingertips.

We have had “THE TALK” about the joys and dangers of life and living.

And now we send them off to school well prepared to face the challenges of higher education and academia, but are they prepared to face the challenges of the predators who stalk, drug, attack, abduct and murder on our campuses?

Provide Your Child Some REAL Life Insurance

Don’t be one of the thousands of parents who look back and “Wish they Had”.

Whether it’s with C.O.B.R.A. or ANY OTHER reputable organization, PLEASE get your child the basics. They deserve the opportunity to live the life you have spent so long preparing them for.
