UPUA Safety Social on HUB Lawn

The University Park Undergraduate Association will be hosting a Safety Social on the HUB Lawn patio this Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. For those of you who remember Campus Night Out, Safety Social will serve as this year’s daytime equivalent of that event, serving to promote campus health and wellness initiatives.

Several organizations including University Health Services, Counseling and Psychological Services, and the Interfaternity and Panhellenic Councils will be there to inform students about safety precautions and available resources. State College Police, University Police, and the State College Borough will also be in attendance.

UPUA members will also be handing out “Know Your Rights” cards, which may come in handy for students who have a run in with the law.

Be sure to stop by each table to become eligible for a free t-shirt, but supplies are limited, so arrive early. There will be also free Rita’s ices and pretzels from Philly Pretzel Factory.
