SCOPE Tip of the Week

Ponderings on Prevention

Did you ever throw rocks into a lake as a kid? Instead of the rock skipping, did you get that big “kerplunk” from a good-sized rock hitting the water? You could see the rippling circles that expanded out from the center.


It’s those circles I want you to think about. Imagine the biggest of the circles on the outside, furthest from where the rock hit the water. This circle represents the entirety of our campus student population.

For more on circles of prevention, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
