Two weeks ago on Oct. 1, Jake Comito gathered about 60 blue 3-by-2-foot poster boards with “NO MORE” printed at the top to Quad Circle on Livingston campus, where students were walking through and asked what the boards were all about.

The Rutgers Business School junior and resident assistant would then explain that he and a few close friends have taken the initiative to align with the Joyful Heart Foundation’s campaign against sexual violence and domestic abuse, "NO MORE."

Comito bared the scorching outdoor heat for five hours to take photos of various students standing in front of the posters to localize and personalize the national message toward the University and violence on college campuses in general.

These images, among others taken before and after the photo event, are posted on social media and distributed to a number of people including other RAs who have posted them in their respective residence halls.
