R.A.D. Rape Aggression Defense Classes Offered at USC Upstate by the Department of Public Safety. The National Standard in Self Defense Education(tm) The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates. Our Instructional Objective: "To develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked." Each class consists of 3 evenings of intensive training for women of all ages and abilities to give basic skills in scenario based situations that could occur in daily life.

A Thomas Wolfe classic and Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Look Homeward Angel isadapted for the stage by Ketti Fring. The play is set in the fictional town of
Altamont, but is a thinly-veiled autobiography that shocked Wolfe's hometown of Asheville, N.C., when the novel debuted in the 1920's. Look Homeward Angel tells the story of the Gant family who lives at the Dixieland Boarding House that is operated by a domineering matriarch who used her children as free labor. It is early autumn of 1916 and 17-year-old Eugene Gant is about to leave the home that has become a prison for his family. His father seeks sanctuary in drinking and trying to carve the winged grace of an angel in stone. His mother devotes herself to the boarding house and its meager rewards. His tubercular brother is doomed, and his sister is a drudge. After a brief affair with a pretty boarder, Eugene rushes toward a brighter future.
