Safe Spring Break 2013

March 4, 2013 at 9:13 am

University of South Carolina Upstate students are counting down the days for their Spring Break vacation to arrive. The week of March 11-15 will find the 330-acre campus nearly deserted as the nearly 5,500 students scatter for beach trips, road trips, volunteer expeditions, home visits, etc.

In anticipation of the upcoming break, the USC Upstate Office of Alcohol and Drug Programs will host its annual Safe Spring Break event on Wednesday, March 6 from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. on the lawn of the Sansbury Campus Life Center.

“This event encourages students to “live well” by making positive, healthy choices in all aspects of their lives, both during Spring Break as well as all year long,” said Jules Auerbach, coordinator of alcohol and drug programs at USC Upstate. “With more than 1,000 students participating in last year’s event, we anticipate this to be the largest Safe Spring Break event to date.”

More than 30 campus and community partners will participate in the Safe Spring Break event and will provide students with information and support in making the best choices possible for their lives and their futures.  Students will have access to information on sun exposure, sex, relationships, health and fitness, and more. In addition, Kato Keller from the B93.7 Hawk and Tom morning show will broadcast live during the event
