Top Ten Ways Students Can Get Involved

Posted: September 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

Do you see yourself in the “Be One” messages?  Consider one or more of these suggestions for how you can help spread the word.

  1. Post a “Be One” poster, magnet, or dry erase board in your residence hall room or apartment.  Contact MTSU Health Promotion at healthpr@mtsu.edu for a free promotional item.  Let us know if you have other ideas or suggestions for how to spread the message.
  2. Verbally challenge any misperceptions you hear about MTSU students.
  3. Promote and attend alcohol-free events on and off campus.  Visit www.mtsu.edu/whatsup for a current calendar of events. 
  4. People watch.  Find a place to sit on campus during a class break and count the number of people you see NOT smoking.  Share your observations with a friend.
  5. Consider volunteering with the Raider Health Corps.  Information about this volunteer group is available at www.mtsu.edu/healthpro.
  6. Post facebook pictures and youtube videos of you and your friends having fun without abusing substances.
  7. Join a student organization like Smoke Free MT or Colleges Against Cancer.
  8. Attend a meeting of the Community Anti-Drug Coalition of Rutherford County (CADCOR).  This group welcomes the input and participation of youth and college students as it works to create a healthier community.  Meeting information is available at www.cadcor.org.
  9. Mentor middle school and high school students.  Make sure they know that alcohol and drugs don’t have to be part of their future college experience.  Don’t assume they already know.
  10. Educate yourself on substance abuse and its effects on a community.
