Andrea was a Collegiate District Officer for Tri Delta for 6 years, supervising 4 collegiate chapters. New Yearís Eve, 1995, Andrea and Mikeís daughter, an only child, Kristin Rebecca Cooper, committed suicide at the age of 20. Kristin was a member of Alpha Chi Omega at Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas. After Kristinís death, Andrea learned that Kristin had been raped by a ďfriendĒ in August of 1995 while home for the summer. As so many women do, Kristin never told her parents. The rape was discovered through Kristinís journal and verified by friends and sorority sisters. Upon her return to Baker, Kristin told her very serious boy friend about the rape. For reasons that will never be known, he broke up with her. That devastated Kristin and she went into a downward spiral of depression. In 1998, Andrea was given a grant by Tri Delta to travel to colleges across the United States and share ďKristinís StoryĒ. In 1999, Alpha Chi Omega also offered Andrea a grant. Andrea now speaks at 14 grant schools a year and an average of 20 paying schools. Andrea immersed herself in learning about sexual-assault, suicide, and depression. She has received a lot of her education by attending an annual Sexual Assault Prevention Conference in Florida, where she has also been asked to speak the last six years. However, Andrea admits she has learned much more from the stories collegians and alumnae have shared with her. Andrea has been invited to speak at many fraternity leadership schools, a medical school, and universities in Toronto and Sydney, Australia. To date, Andrea has spoken at approximately 300 universities and 25 conferences. Andrea is thrilled and honored to be serving on the Greeks Against Sexual Assault Advisory Board at UC Davis.

Liz Seccuro is a victims' rights advocate and the founder of STARS (Sisters Together Assisting Rape Survivors), a donor-advised fund that assists all survivors of rape, sexual assault, and incest. Seccuro also teaches a few classes a year at Georgetown University's Graduate School of Journalism on how to write responsibly about sex crimes and the art of interviewing victims of violence.
As documented in her 2011 memoir Crash Into Me: A Survivor's Search for Justice, her story began in 1984 when she was drugged and raped by a fellow student, William Nottingham Beebe, as a 17-year-old freshman at the University of Virginia. The university did nothing to aid her in seeking justice and offered no official remedy, leaving her on her own to pick up the pieces. It wasn't until 2005 - after receiving a letter of apology from Beebe inviting her to contact him so that he could explain what led him to rape her and, ostensibly, help her heal - that she was able to take action against him. Following a frightening and eerie email correspondence with her rapist, she submitted her evidence to the Charlottesville Police Department, who arrested Beebe. He was ultimately sentenced to 18 months in prison and required to perform 500 hours of community service, including speaking on college campuses about sexual assault and substance abuse. To this day, there is no record of this condition of parole being met.
Since the publication of Crash Into Me, Liz Seccuro has appeared on a multitude of national television shows, radio shows, blogs, and magazines. Most notably, a three-part excerpt of her book was featured in Marie Claire magazine, both nationally and abroad. In 2011, she received the Shining Star/Vision Award from Boston's Victim Rights Law Center and in November 2012 she was honored by SAVI/NYC of Mt. Sinai Hospital for her advocacy, joining past honorees such as prosecutor and author Linda Fairstein, Trisha Meili (the "Central Park Jogger"), and actress Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
In January 2013, she was named to the national advisory board of the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) and continues to lobby on Capitol Hill with RAINN on behalf of survivors of violent crime. A frequent contributor to The Huffington Post, she is at work on a number of magazine articles on the scourge of military sexual assault and the NFL's culture of violence.
