West Virginia University groups have partnered with the Morgantown and University Police to hold ‘hydration stations’ every weekend.
With warmer weather approaching, nightlife in Morgantown is becoming more active, which can mean more alcohol related incidents.
Volunteers will pass out water, sports drinks, and snacks, while encouraging positive decision making behaviors.
“We just want them to make good choices if they’re going to choose to drink, and that they keep in mind that less is more, that they don’t have to go overboard. If they choose to, they can have a few drinks and still have a good time and be safe, and responsible,” said Wes Thomas from Well WVU
Student volunteers, University staff, and community members will be passing these items out at The Foundry Church on High St. and near the front of the Mountainlair every weekend from 8 p.m. To 12 a.m.
This is sponsored by WVU Student Life (including WVU Collegiate Recovery Center, WELLWVU, and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life), the Greater Morgantown Safe Communities Initiative, the Mon County Prevention Coalition, WVU Student Health Center, and the support of the Morgantown and University Police Departments.
