Campus Recreation Offers ‘Safe Spring Break’ Pool Party

safe-spring-break-300x169The Office of Health Promotion, part of the Department of Campus Recreation, is hosting a “Safe Spring Break” Pool Party from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday (March 9) at the Turner Center.

The party will include music, food, giveaways and educational activities to prepare students for their upcoming spring break.

“I hope students learn how to have a healthy and safe spring break,” said T Davis, health educator and a health advocate adviser.

Some of the educational programing will include information on alcohol consumption, water safety and skin health.

“Specifically, we will have conversations about drinking (protective behaviors), along with bystander intervention techniques,” Davis said.

A campus organization called Rebels Against Sexual Assault will be at the party to offer the bystander intervention training in hopes of providing students with the know-how to intervene if another student is at risk.

Some of these training activities will be scenarios in nonconsensual sexual activity and relationship violence that can occur, said Sydney Green, RASA president.

“Our ultimate goal is to empower students to support survivors of sexual and relationship violence and create a university environment in which violence is not tolerated,” Green said.

This is the first time such an event has been conducted at Ole Miss, and organizers hope to reach as many students as possible.
