S.A.A.W WEEK

Sexual Assault Awareness month occurs the first week of April. Everyday in Academic or Rudder Plaza look for the large-teal “SAAW” letters. Stop by for the daily event, get active in raising awareness for sexual assault, and pick-up S.A.A.W memorabilia.

BBQ

To close S.A.A.W week, SAAM organizes a BBQ that is hosted at the Vice President’s house to raise funds for SARC and CLEAR offices with Texas A&M University. With the purchase of a S.A.A.W BBQ ticket, you get a shirt and plates of BBQ tailgate food. Furthermore, Miss Reveille makes an appearance, in addition to performances by organizations such as the Femmatas.
