ALCOHOL AWARENESS WEEK 2014: October 27-October 31

Join us in learning about alcohol and the impact it has on ourselves, our campus and our society by attending any of the events throughout the week.  You can also engage online by searching #makeSMARTchoices on any social media site that utilizes hashtags.


MONDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2014: Wake Up Ready!

The Peer Educators will be handing out breakfast goodies and information about alcohol and the week's events at tables located across campus including Mandeville, Merion, and the courtyards of Post and Barbelin.  Stop by to say hi and grab some information.


TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2014: The Wall that Alcohol Built

Stop by the Peer Education table in Campion to add to the Wall that Alcohol Built.  Students are asked to put the positive or negative impacts that alcohol can have on one's life on paper bricks to symbolically build the wall together.  The Wall will be up all week so stop by to check it out.


WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2014: Black Out Day

#BlackOutDay is an annual awareness event at SJU to promote healthy choices and reflect on the impact of alcohol on our community while honoring those we have lost due to alcohol.  Those participating in Black Out Day will wear black and take a vow of silence from 9am-5pm.

During this time, the participant can not speak or communicate in any way including via text, Facebook or any other social media and at any time including in class, at lunch or hanging with friends.  This silence is to represent what it would be like if that person was lost due to an alcohol-related tragedy such as a DUI accident, overdose or addiction.  Please respect the silence of those participating in Black Out Day.

At 530pm, we will break the silence and talk about the impact alcohol has on ourselves and our community.  Everyone is welcome to join us for dinner and discussion.
