FMU to hold alcohol awareness events for students

   FLORENCE, S.C. – The Francis Marion University Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Task Force will kick off its National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week activities Wednesday (Oct. 12) with a "Green Bean Campaign."

   The campaign is a series of fliers encouraging students to discuss alcohol abuse. The campaign compares drinking six beers a night to eating six cans of green beans a night.

   On Tuesday, Oct. 18, members of the task force will attend the FMU women’s soccer match at 4 p.m. and the Patriot volleyball match at 7 p.m. In between the two athletic contests, at 5:30 p.m., FMU students are invited to a "tailgate party with a purpose" on the Smith University Center pool patio, with free food and music. The FMU Campus Police will conduct sobriety activities using "drunk goggles."

   For more information, contact La Tasha Brand, assistant dean of students, at 843-661-4643.
