Peer educators trade megaphone for porcelain
Facilities provided the toilet, and Asian studies senior Yosef Y. Kalish provided the drama as he and several other students known as peer educators demonstrated one of the consequences of excessive alcohol consumption at the Bell Tower on Oct. 18.
The Campus Alcohol and Substance Awareness program, part of Tuttleman Counseling Services, raised awareness — and some eyebrows — with its event recognizing National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.
CASA’s peer educators organized the event to demonstrate to students the potential dangers of drinking.
Members of the Temple community also contributed to the event by providing their resources and time: University Housing donated a bed, Facilities provided the toilet, and Student Health Services and Campus Safety Services provided staff members to take part in the scenes and talk with students.
