Step Four: Evaluation Q27. Do you have any other comments or suggestions about the SWAT experience? Although greek life does need our help, we should try to outreach to more identity based unions, so our resources are more fairly allocated to broader spectrum of the community. More youth education! Lets get swat into high schools and junior high populations. Best club, activist organization, student leadership experience on campus. life-changing. swat enriched my college experience by providing a safe community of UO students committed to a common cause of ending sexual violence and learn together. I love swat and Abigail! I LOVE SWAT. One of the best parts of college. I wouldnt have been able to cope with my own victimhood of sexual assault without it. I will miss SWAT more that I can ever explain. SWAT is my family. I will always love it and feel blessed to have been a part of it. Thank You. We should get more funding because we rock!
