Here comes the sun....
It’s that time of year where we are looking to get that summer glow ready and are tired of feeling pale. We advise that you consider sun safety first. After all, no one wants that awful feeling of pouring on aloe and skin peeling!
If you are 21 years of age or older, do you plan on consuming alcohol over spring break?
If you are of legal age and are considering going out for a fun evening that may include drinking activities, we advise that you drink responsibly. Moderate drinking will ensure your safety and the safety of your fellow friends and peers. Remember that if you have consumed alcohol, do not get behind the wheel!
Safety can be romantic
