"Reduce the odds," a campus safety keynote lecture for first year students, will be held Friday, Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the North Gym of the Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center on the MSU campus.

The keynote will be presented by Steve Kardian, a 30-year veteran New York police detective who speaks frequently about sexual assault. Kardian will address how to reduce the risk of being a victim. Event organizers say that Kardian, through the means of awareness, avoidance and escape, helps students understand the mind of a predator and helps them understand the difference between a "hard target" and a "soft target."

The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the President's Office, MSU Sports and Recreation Department, ASMSU and Diversities Awareness.
