Sexual Assault & Spring Break Awareness Week


As students, we are MORE than aware of the exact second spring break begins. We may plan to surf some waves or just surf some couches, but one thing is for certain – we often do not think too long about our well-being. Georgia Southern genuinely cares for its students, and continues to foster a rich culture of student support on campus. In particular, the university is currently doing so via Sexual Assault and Spring Break Awareness Week. Here’s a simple breakdown of the happenings going on this week:

ALL WEEK: The Clothesline Project is taking place from Monday until Thursday – t-shirts will be hanging around the Russell Union, Centennial Place, and the RAC. Shirts can be decorated at no cost for those affected by sexual assault and domestic violence to have their voices heard. Seeing the shirts hanging is a grand reminder of all survivors of violence.

TUESDAY: Free HIV testing and skin screening in Russell Union Room 2047 from 11 AM – 2 PM. The only risk lies in not knowing, so take advantage of this opportunity!

WEDNESDAY: The Science of Marijuana: Lunch & Learn: 12 – 1:30 PM in Russell Union 2047; Eagles Fight Back: 3 PM in Russell Union Ballroom.

THURSDAY: Arrive Alive DUI Simulator: 10 AM – 4 PM; “Take Back the Night” is a march beginning in front of the Dining Commons at 7 PM on Thursday night and culminates at the Rotunda with an “End the Violence” rally. Giveaways will be provided for participants, so come out and join the empowerment!

Prepare yourselves to have a fun and safe spring break!
