Before students leave campus for a weeklong Spring Break, a variety of helpful offices collaborated to provide tips on safety, sobriety and sanity during their time away from classes. The annual event – Tuesday’s theme was “Cheeseburgers in Paradise” – includes a School of Hospitality competition to create the tastiest nonalcoholic drinks. Sound advice was also offered on “Healthy Wildcat Wednesday,” when Kristi L. Hammaker, health and fitness specialist, engaged students outside the Capitol Eatery at dinnertime.
