Event to promote student safety during spring break

With spring break fast approaching next week, The University of Toledo wants to raise awareness and promote safety among students during their time away.

The Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Committee will host the Spring Break Safety Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28 in the Student Union Tom Trimble Lounge and Ingman Room.

“Spring break is always a risky time for students,” said Alexis Blavos, UT’s Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Specialist. “We want to make sure that all of our students are being safe while they are onspring break.”

The fair will feature numerous informational tables, such as UT Police offering self defense lessons, pharmacy students providing tips for sun safety and Colleges Against Cancer sharing information on tobacco and other drugs. There also will be HIV testing, body fat analysis, sexual assault prevention and many other services.

Free T-shirts and food from Subway will be awarded to anyone who visits at least seven of the information tables, some of which will have their own prizes such as UT sunglasses.

Spring break is the week of March 5 with students returning to campus Monday, March 12.
