Swallow This!

A new "Swallow This!" show is devised each year through the Prevention Through the Arts community performance course.  Created by dramatizing real stories from the university community, content deals with the three main health issues facing college students: 1) alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs; 2) depression and suicide; 3) sexual assault and rape.  The aim of the show is to encourage dialogue and reflection on these issues and to ultimately inspire students to make healthier, more informed choices.  Students are admitted to the course after audition and become trained in both peer health education and theater.  The show is written and performed by students, for students.

"Swallow This!" debuts each academic year in late fall, and performs throughout the rest of the academic year at campus events, including orientation.

For more information, visit the Center for Prevention and Outreach website.
