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.
