All the students were informed

Yes, I have heard about the policy that has been made here at CBU regarding sexual consent and there was an audiovisual presentation that was shown to us. There was a screening in which all the students were informed and during that time you could sit there and get proper guidance. everything was told: [...] how to do it, where to go, and if something happened to you what you have to do and whom to inform. So,I think that is a really good platform for the institution [...]. Especially as an immigrant, I don’t know what to do; I have to know the law, cause it's totally different in this country.
