9am-5pm across campus: #BlackOutDay2014 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.

530pm in President's Lounge: We will break the silence and talk about the impact alcohol has on ourselves and our community.  Everyone is welcome to join us for Black Out Day Dinner and Discussion.
