School’s back in session, and that means so many more opportunities to nail being safe and cute at the same time. Of course ,campus safety is a huge issue facing many colleges around the country … it’s always in the news and from what we found out at University of Texas recently, it’s always on a girl’s mind. And some campuses are safer than others, but you can never be too careful. Lawstreetmedia.com adds that the top offenses on campuses are forcible sexual offenses, robbery, and aggravated assaults, and even sometimes murder. They also ranked the most dangerous campuses in the country.

That being said, blingsting is on it. We are starting small and heading out to schools around our home state of Texas to spread the word: safety doesn’t have to be ugly! Campus safety can actually be semi-fun and by being engaged and excited about your pepper spray, you take the first step in becoming more aware of your decisions. Many of the girls we spoke to at UT said they always have safety on their mind when walking on campus at night, coming home from the gym or the library. They also told us that partying (while totally fun) is a dangerous part of life in college. We agree. We remember.
We had a blast at Texas and will continue to visit other campuses to show girls that campus safety is always priority numero uno. Fortunately, the girls absolutely loved the blingsting – and we had lots and lots of interest, which is never a bad thing. Here’s a little bit of what we heard, when we asked them what campus safety means to them.
And some more shots! Adorable!
