Students for Self-Defense at ASU hit the ground running during Fall Welcome Week at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

We started on Monday at the RHA Tiki Luau, where the turnout was incredible! S4SD volunteers talked to students, new and returning, about all of the events that we’re bringing to campus this semester, as well as our mission of legalizing self-defense at the university. We also gave students the opportunity to practice with training pepper spray (no pepper, just water).

On Wednesday, we went to Passport to ASU, the university’s giant club fair, and asked students how they would defend themselves if they were allowed to carry anything they wanted to for defensive purposes.

We got a lot of responses: some predictable, and some really funny.

Congratulations to Yoselin, who won our drawing for a $25 Starbucks gift card, and a big thanks to everyone else who signed up with us! Our first meeting is on Wednesday, the 24th of August (click here to RSVP). Want to know when our events are happening? Subscribe to our calendar!
