TRAVERSE CITY — NMC's Office of Student Life will host a Take Back the Night march and rally March 16, beginning at West Hall at 5 p.m. and concluding at the Oleson Center at 6 p.m.

Take Back the Night is a movement to support and empower survivors of sexual assault and to spread awareness about this prevailing issue in communities worldwide. The event is free and open to the campus community and general public. Participants will meet at 5 p.m. outside of West Hall on NMC's main campus to rally and march across campus.
