“I used to live with four guys off campus, and one of the things I heard from one of them is that he uses the pull-out method,” Schlick said, “To me … hearing that is kind of shocking. It’s a little scary.”

Schlick encourages students to be sexually responsible by exploring all birth control options. She is an on-campus advocate for bedsider.org, a comprehensive online resource about all varieties of birth control.
