With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to check your relationship status.

On Thursday, Feb. 5, the Outreach Education department and the BSU Peer Educators held an information table in the RCC Lower Foyer to educate students about unhealthy relationships.

BSU Peer Educator Julia Stern said that the event was held to teach students how to differentiate healthy relationships from unhealthy ones.

“Most people don’t realize when they’re in unhealthy relationships,” said BSU Peer Educator Brittany Cullinane.

In order to combat this problem, information about unhealthy relationships was provided. A poster with a recipe for a healthy relationship was displayed, and pamphlets about topics such as dating dangers and STDs were available.

Students could even participate in a game for a chance to win a prize. Various behaviors were read, and participants had to guess if the behavior was a sign of a healthy or an unhealthy relationship.

Resources for people in unhealthy relationships were also available. Stern said that students in need could contact the BSU Peer Educators or go to the Counseling Center here on campus.

Even with the most romantic day of the year almost upon us, now is a great time to make sure that you are looking out for yourself and keeping yourself safe. You might not know that something is wrong, but there are people who are always willing to help you out.
