First be-WISE-er event to promote smart decisions

The Alpha Kappa Psi Chapter at The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation is presenting an event to combat substance abuse.

Called be-WISE-er, it will take place Tuesday, April 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium. 

“All it takes is one sip, one time and one night to end your world,” said Natalie Alexandra Zerucha, the Awareness and Safety Chair of UT College of Business and Innovation’s Alpha Kappa Psi Chapter. “We want all students to simply ‘be wiser’ about their choices.”

Keynote speakers will be Dr. Brian Hoeflinger, who will share his experience of losing his 18-year-old son in a drunk-driving accident, and Matt Bell, one of the founders of Team Recovery, a local organization of recovering heroin addicts who are working to help other addicts get sober.

“We’re not here to judge,” Zerucha said. “We’re here to tell our fellow classmates that we want them to get the dream job that they came to college to get an education for. However, we hope the people that we asked to join us will be a reminder that anything can happen.”

The free event is open to all UT students and the general public. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with free food and prizes. 

Alpha Kappa Psi is the oldest and largest professional business fraternity.
