Fresh Check Day registration table

The Office of Student Wellness and Health Promotion hosted Fresh Check Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom on Sept. 23.

One of the booths encouraged students to be one of the 9 college students who helps the 1 in 10 college students who contemplates suicide. This table also included a jeopardy game in which students could learn about suicidal thoughts and gave out refrigerator magnets with the warning signs of suicide listed on them.

Other booths included

  • A registration table that handed out orange “Fresh Check Day t-shirts”
  • “Know Your Limits” which educated students about responsible alcohol consumption
  • A table for Campus Recreation and Intramurals
  • A “Paint Your Art Out” table
  • A table for the Counseling Center, which included the campus therapy dog
  • A prize table for students who got five stamps on their registration card showing that they participated in all the tables
