Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Testing for Non-Consensual Drugging


What if I think I was deliberately incapacitated with drugs or alcohol?

Signs you may have been drugged without your consent:

  • You suddenly feel very drunk or disoriented after having had only 1 or 2 drinks.
  • You suddenly feel drowsy and have trouble focusing or controlling your movements.
  • You remember very little after accepting a beverage.
  • You awaken hours later and find yourself completely or partially undressed, or notice soreness indicating that sexual contact may have occurred.

Accessing Support

  • If you experienced or believe you may have experienced sexual assault, you can meet with a Sexual Violence Coordinator through the Sexual Civility and Empowerment Program (SCE).  They can connect you to all available resources and discuss safety and health care options.  To set up an appointment, contact SCE at or (614) 292-4806.
  • If you do not believe sexual assault occurred, you can contact the Student Advocacy Center (SAC) at or (614) 292-1111 for support and resources.

Reporting the incident:
