On Wednesday, September 1, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. SU kicked off its “Breathe Easy” campaign in Red Square. The event provided more information about the new Smoke-Free Campus policy and alternatives to smoking.
Several organizations were in attendance to answer questions about becoming a smoke-free individual and to provide information about local cessation programs. These groups included the Wicomico County Health Department, American Lung Association, American Cancer Society and Peninsula Regional Medical Center, among others. Information regarding University-sponsored cessation programs was provided by Student Health Services and the Counseling Center.
The event also featured giveaways and games, including a dunk tank booth with Wicomico County State’s Attorney Davis Ruark! Light refreshments were provided.
Co-sponsored by the Student Affairs Wellness Committee, Healthy U of Delmarva, the Student Government Association and Colleges Against Cancer, the event was free and all members of the campus community were invited.
