On November 19, the Fordham Peer Educators will host the Collegiate Smoke Out, which coincides with the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smoke Out. This week peer educators are stationed in the McGinley lobby from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., distributing brochures and educational materials to address tobacco use and encourage peers to quit smoking. Students interested will have the opportunity to discuss quitting strategies with staff from the Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program.

The week will include pledges for students to either quit smoking or to never begin using tobacco products. These pledges will double as raffle tickets for three prizes (gift cards to Ann & Tony’s, Applebees and iTunes). The Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program will also be giving out free cotton candy to any student who correctly answers a question on our “wheel” of alcohol and other drug questions.
