CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein has started a series of appearances on college campuses to speak about issues facing students.

Stein held his first event Thursday at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Stein, other Department of Justice attorneys and school leaders talked about student loan challenges, as well as sexual assault and alcohol and prescription drug abuse.

Stein participated in panel discussions and met students. He says the events are designed to get helpful information to young people so that they’ll be able to protect themselves.

Stein’s office says future campus sites will be announced as they are scheduled.
