It is also a good idea to watch out for your friends, said Dawn McKee, education and outreach coordinator for the Centre County Women's Resource Center, 140 W. Nittany Ave.
"If you go out with a group of friends, don't leave your friend behind if they're really drunk," McKee said.
To reduce the risk of sexual assault, McKee emphasizes trusting your gut instincts.
Use caution when inviting someone into your home or going into someone else's home, McKee said.
Three-fifths of sexual assaults occur in the home of the victim or the home of the assailant, she added.
Also, avoid walking next to shrubbery or dark doorways where someone could hide, she said.

Dawn McKee, director of education for the Centre County Women's Resource Center, said she believes more reports are made because "victims are more comfortable, they know that help is out there," she said."The more training for responders, the less the victims will feel that they are being blamed.Blame silences victims."
The publicity given a number of stranger attacks that occurred this fall, including a series of attacks in which women were accosted and the male attacker tried to pull the victim's clothes off, may also have raised people's awareness of sexual assaults in general, McKee said.That might have led to an increase in the number of reported attacks committed by acquaintances, she said.
"Victims of stranger rape don't have the barrier of knowing the attacker," McKee said.
