Registered student organizations and departments across campus have created events including a pep rally, a comedy show, movies, athletics, a dodge ball tournament and much more.
Student Wellness and Health Promotion and UDPD encourage students to practice general safety behaviors such as avoiding walking alone at night, staying clear of the railroad tracks, keeping doors locked and reporting any suspicious activity.
“Students can always take an active role in promoting their own safety and the safety of others,” said Chase, reminding students to practice safe behaviors such as never leaving a drink unattended, using a designated driver, recognizing the signs of alcohol poisoning and calling 911 for help.
