Alpha Chi Omega to host ”Kristin’s Story” talk to raise awareness of sexual violence, depression

The campus community is invited to the Alpha Chi Omega-hosted talk, “Kristin’s Story,” with Andrea Fuller Cooper Oct. 13 at 4 p.m.

Cooper’s daughter, Kristin, was a college-aged woman who, after becoming a victim of acquaintance rape, became depressed and, ultimately, committed suicide. Cooper’s goal is to not only tell her story but to encourage people in similar situations to seek help, to teach individuals how to recognize symptoms of depression and how to prevent similar situations from occurring.

Cooper’s talk will be held in The Spot in Leutner Commons. Food and beverages will be provided.
