Getting you ready for Spring Break!February 25th, 2014
Wednesday, February 26th will be a busy day for us! The ATOD Prevention Programs and the Rec Center are collaborating to host the annual Spring Break Kick-Off. Spring Break is here, while this is a very exciting time for our students, it is important that safety remains a top priority at the University of Toledo. This event will provide students with essential information on personal safety while enjoying spring break activities. There will be free food, t-shirts, and a dive-in-movie (so bring your bathing suit!)! We will also have free HIV testing available, information on safe alcohol consumption, sun safety, nutrition and hydration as well as a table on sexual health to answer any questions you may have. Rocky may even stop by to say hello! So come have a mock-tail, watch a movie, and get some great giveaways to get you ready for your spring break trip, or stay-cation. Don’t miss this fun and informational event.
In addition to the Kick-Off, next week is National Eating Disorder Awareness week. To bring awareness to this issue, we will be having a table at the Spring Break Kick-off to assess your risk of an eating disorder. We will also have information to promote positive body image, helping friends with an eating disorder, local agencies that specialize in this area, and information about the various types of eating disorders. Our table will have some healthy snack options and other fun giveaways too! Counselors will be available to discuss your assessment results or answer any questions you may have.
Spring Break Kick-Off and Eating Disorder Awareness Day is Wednesday, February 26th
from 10am-2pm at the Rec Center (in the pool area). Hope to see you there!
