“Through With Chew” focuses on making students aware


The “Through With Chew” week is underway, and is focused on making students more aware of what tobacco use can do to a person’s body.

Displays of what tobacco products can do to a person were shown on Monday at the Occhiato University Center.

Quatisha Franklin, a member of the TEPP board, had information, handouts and other items for students to stop and take a look at in the Library and Academic Resources Center on Tuesday.

“Our focus is to raise campus awareness of alcohol and drugs,” Franklin said. “I also run the ‘Even Zombies Know’ campaign.”

Franklin and her volunteers travel from classroom to classroom and ask to be allowed to do a five minute presentation to answer questions about alcohol and drugs.

“I haven’t made it all the way around campus, but I’m headed there,” Franklin said.

Her office, Alcohol and Other Drugs, is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 004B in the basement of the OUC.

Franklin said she welcomes questions, and can be reached at 549-2121.
