Safe Spring Break

Wednesday, 12 March, 2014

During the week of March 10-14, the University of Tennessee Safety, Environment and Education (S.E.E.) Center will host a Safe Spring Break event from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the Pedestrian Walkway.

The event is titled "Our Lives. Our Health. Our Future." and will highlight the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy lifestyle during Spring Break and beyond. At the event, students will have the opportunity to engage in interactive learning activities and take away informational documents, free flash drives, and Spring Break 2014 tank tops for the first 100 student participants each day.

Students will be encouraged to wear the shirts during Spring Break while they are engaged in safe and fun activities, and then post their photos to the S.E.E. Center's Twitter feed @volshelpvols. At the conclusion of Spring Break, the S.E.E. Center will hold a drawing, and one randomly selected student will win a prize.

Schedule of events:

Monday March 10: Underage drinking prevention

Tuesday March 11: Prescription drug abuse and marijuana

Wednesday March 12: Prevention of alcohol abuse

Thursday March 13: Prevention of suicide and promotion of mental health

Friday March 14: Prevention and cessation of tobacco use

The event is sponsored in part by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Campus and community partners including the Student Counseling Center, the UTPD, the Knoxville Metropolitan Drug Commission, and the Knox County Health Department will be on hand to engage with and educate students.
