(March 7, 2011)--The UTSA Office of Student Activities and BARR (Be A Responsible Roadrunner) will sponsor two events Wednesday, March 9 to encourage students to have a safe Spring Break.
"Students are preparing for Spring Break, and I want my fellow Roadrunners to return safely," said Jessica Beemer, UTSA graduate student and organizer for both events.
The first event, "Driving Towards a Safe Spring Break" is 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Wednesday, March 9 at Bill Miller Plaza on the Downtown Campus.
The free event for the UTSA community will feature a drunk-driving simulator provided by the New Braunfels Police Department. Participants can take a ride in the simulator and have open discussion with police officers. The goal is to remind everyone of the consequences of underage drinking and drinking under the influence."
The event is sponsored by BARR and supported by Student Activities, New Braunfels Police Department, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, and UTSA Crime Prevention.
The second event of the day is "Safe Float: It's No Joke!" from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 9 at the Campus Recreation Center pool on the Main Campus.
The free event for the UTSA community will demonstrate safe river floating techniques, along with presentations and activities to prepare UTSA students for safe Spring Break activities. The New Braunfels Police Department's DUI simulator will be on-site so participants can test their driving skills after a few simulated alcoholic drinks.
The new event is sponsored by Be A Responsible Roadrunner, and supported by Campus Recreation, Student Activities, New Braunfels Police Department, Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, and UTSA Crime Prevention.
The institute will feature a performance from Eva Ybarra, the “Queen of the Accordion.” Manuel Medrano will premiere a documentary on Ybarra’s career. Two people receive free admission with a voucher available here.
