Fun times, sobering information come together
at Natural High Fair

The order of the day will be a safe, sober good time on Wednesday, Oct. 24, when California State University, Sacramento hosts its annual Natural High Fair. The fair will be in the library quad from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The fair is held along with National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week and promotes alternatives to drugs and alcohol.

"We are trying to show students that there are many ways to have a good time without abusing drugs or alcohol, and the Natural High Fair will be one big fun and sober party," says Ken Morton, CSUS director of recreational sports. "Students need to support each other in making healthy lifestyle choices."

Activities for the day will include volleyball, a rock climbing wall and student organization booths.

In addition there will be a rollover simulator to show the effects of drinking and driving. People will also be encouraged to try on a pair of "beer goggles" that simulates the disorientation felt from drinking.

Local law enforcement, the CSUS health center, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the American Lung Association are among groups that will have informational booths.

Participation in this year's fair is free thanks in part to donations from Pepsi, the CSUS Foundation, Student Activities and Associated Students.
