WHITE SPRING BREAK SAFETY PROGRAM IN CENTENNIAL HALL ON MARCH 5
This free event, sponsored by Fraternity and
Sorority Programs, features Mark Sterner’s presentation entitled “DUI: A
Powerful Lesson.” This poignant story describes Mark’s tragic experience
as an undergraduate student during his senior year spring break. Mark tells the
story of his fraternity brother’s nights out drinking during their spring
break. He also talks about their final night of partying and how he was the one
who ended up with the car keys at the end of the night. The next morning, three
of his friends were dead and Mark lay in hospital bed critically injured and
facing felony charges, all stemming from a drunk-driving accident.
