Safe break emphasizes Spring break safety
A social event will take place this week in order to inform students about how to stay safe during Spring break.
The event, Safe Break, is sponsored by the Panhellenic Association and has been held annually since the death of OU student Lisa Weider while she was on Spring break several years ago. Weider's parents attend the event to speak of their own experiences and how students themselves can stay safe.
"I feel that it is important for students to come to Safe Break," said Sarah Williams, political science sophomore. "I think that [students] kind of forget that there is a reality outside of Spring break there are consequences for their actions."
Safe Break will take place Wednesday at 6:30 in front of the Delta Delta Delta sorority house. It is a free event and will offer refreshments and music as well as the speaking by the Weiders.
