BRIEF: Wellness center conducts drug and alcohol facts week


With another month comes another facts week in the health and wellness center. Last month, it was drug and alcohol facts week. The health and wellness center hosted a number of events for drug and alcohol facts week, including a spin the wheel and scratchers to quiz students on drugs and alcohol.

Health and wellness counselor Anna Gammelgard hopes that the wide range of activities will help the wellness center reach all students.

“Our goal is that we want to equip students with the knowledge so they can make educated decisions about dropping alcohol use.” Gammelgard said. “We go to individual groups of students and encourage them to come on over. Some students are interested and some are not, but we want to be able to give the option to as many students as possible.”

They also conducted field sobriety tests to inform students of what may happen during a traffic stop.
