It is sad to say that Spring Break has come and gone—now it’s time to crack open those dusty textbooks once more, and make it through the final stretch of classes. But the tan lines and bikini pics will be a lasting memory of your Spring Break 2013, a time of fun, sun, and safety! Did you party smart, buckle up, and lather up that SPF? At SPARKS, we like everyone to enjoy Spring Break to the fullest by making healthy, low-risk decisions. Moseley tables complete with Safe Spring Break kits, tips, and tanks helped to kick of Spring Break, SPARKS style.
Safe Spring Break Kits: We hope you stopped by our Moseley table to make your own Safe Spring Break kit complete with sunscreen, condoms, Chap Stick, temporary tattoos, and more. Let’s not forget free tank tops! No sweat if you missed out, come back next year for more SSB goodies. (Stop by early, these hot commodities go fast!)
AND THE WINNER IS… Hope y’all uploaded your photos for the Safe Spring Break Photo Contest! We asked students to send in a picture of themselves sporting the Safe Spring Break tank while making low-risk choices. Congratulations to Maritza Dee, the new owner of free tickets to the Spring Show! With runner ups, Leandra Nikont and Kimberly Gersh receiving Dunkin Donuts gift cards. (hurry and go check your campus mailbox!)
Free STI Testing: SPARKS offered free STI (sexually transmitted infection) testing at the Ellington Health Center in order for students to “know before you go.” This non-invasive test screens for gonorrhea and chlamydia, both common and curable STIs, as a great way to stay healthy and prevent the further spread of STIs.
Thank you all for making Safe Spring Break such a success. But don’t let those safety tips go to waste! Wearing sunscreen, driving safely, staying hydrated, and knowing your limits are just a few ways to keep everyday safe.
