Safe Spring Break Carnival Prepares USC Upstate Students For Spring Break

February 23, 2011 at 2:11 pm

College students are known for letting loose during Spring Break and sometimes making questionable decisions concerning the use of alcohol. University of South Carolina Upstate students will have an opportunity to gain information and explore options for healthy and safe choices surrounding alcohol use and in all aspects of their lives, both during Spring Break and throughout the whole year on Wednesday, March 2. The Alcohol and Drug Education Programs will host its annual Safe Spring Break Carnival from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Campus Life Center.

“Creating a fun atmosphere for USC Upstate students where they can learn to make decisions that will keep them safe and healthy is critical as they plan to depart campus for spring break trips,” said Jules Pitts, coordinator of the Alcohol and Drug Education Programs at USC Upstate. “Offering free food, prizes, and an airbrush tattoo booth is also an incentive.”

Pitts is also collaborating with the following programs to make the Safe Spring Break Carnival a major attraction for the college students: Counseling Center, Campus Recreation, Health Services, Hollywild Animal Park, Humane Society Pet Therapy, Tell Them!, Spartanburg Alcohol and Drug Commission, Campus Activities Board, University Police, and more.
