Safe Spring Break Carnival Planned for Feb. 29 on USC Upstate Campus

February 27, 2012 at 4:57 pm

As 5,500 University of South Carolina Upstate students prepare to go on Spring Break, the office of Alcohol and Drug Programs announces its annual Safe Spring Break Carnival will be held on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the lawn in front of the Campus Life Center.

More than 25 campus/community participants are scheduled to participate including a live music broadcast from Hot 98.1 FM, food and beverages from Wade’s and Papa John’s Pizza, the drunk driving simulator provided by University Police, and a special Safe Spring Break cake sponsored by Alcohol and Drug Programs.

The purpose of this event is to support students in making positive choices for their health and future and to provide them information with which to critically evaluate the choices they make during spring break and every day.  Information will be available for students to help them make healthy, safe choices in all aspects of their lives including drinking/partying, sun exposure, water sports, sex, dating/relationships, and exercise/wellness.
