Chico state welcomes thousands of students back on campus this week, and many of them have already started training on a topic the university says it takes very seriously: Consent. 

In July we reported how Kylie Martinez, an incoming student-athlete at Chico State, said she fell victim to a vulgar event.  Around that time, a photo of Martinez with racial slurs on her arm began to circulate on social media. A university investigation found that Martinez did not give consent to the words being written on her body, or the photo being taken or posted.

On Monday, Action News Now learned that all students must participate in online training about consent before they can register for classes. A university representative told us the school is also rolling out a new program called Wildcats Act, to help enforce what consent means, and how to recognize when a peer might be in trouble.

We also spoke with one of Kylie Martinez's soccer teammates, who says that what happened to Martinez was unfortunate and that the team supports her.

Chico State plans to welcome 4800 new students to campus this week. That includes 2800 first-time freshmen, 400 graduate students and 1600 transfer students. We wish them all luck with the new school year.
