The Office of Student Wellness and Development and the University of Central Arkansas Police Department have planned a week of safety-related activities to prepare students for their time away from the university during Spring Break.
The week of activities, Safe Spring Break 2016, will take place prior to students leaving campus. The events consist of several activities designed to provide educational information to students in order to encourage responsible decision-making and prevent or reduce the risks involved in the college Spring Break experience.
