Get ready for the Great American Smokeout

Get ready for the Great American Smokeout!

From the Wellness Center

Come kick that butt by joining in the events leading up to the Great American Smokeout Friday, Nov. 18. The Wellness Center will have an information booth outside the Commuter Center Wednesday, Nov. 16, and one in Koch Commons Thursday, Nov. 17. Also, information will be available in the Commuter Center on Fruity Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Stop by and pick up a "quit kit" or send a card to a friend who you would like to encourage to stop smoking. Prizes are available for those students, staff or faculty who turn in their cigarettes. Also, the booth will have ways to win prizes; just stop by. The booth will have information for both smokers and nonsmokers.

Here are a couple related Web sites: Smoke Free, and Tobacco Free U.

For more information or to request a "quit kit" by mail, contact the Wellness Center at (651) 962-6128.
