WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2013: 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 a black t-shirt and take a vow of silence from 9am-5pm today.

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 wearing a black Black Out Day shirt. 

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.

 

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013: HALLOWEEN

Free Halloween goodie bags will be passed out by Peer Educators in Campion during free period.  Be sure you are in the area to get your hands on some treats!
