A series of interactive events starting March 4 will bring awareness to personal well-being and safety.
Safe Knight Week, which runs through March 7, is an opportunity to learn about self-care, personal safety and emergency preparedness. The goal for the week is to provide learning opportunities that will be useful to apply during UCF’s spring break (March 11-16) and in the future.
The week will kick off with the Safe Knight Week carnival, which will showcase safety and wellness services at UCF and throughout the community.
The carnival will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday on Memory Mall. There will be activities to de-stress, a showcase of emergency response vehicles and tools, as well as prizes.
Tuesday will feature a Lunch and Learn, where attendees will hear about healthy communication and relationships while eating a free lunch with fellow Knights. This event will be on Memory Mall at noon.
Wednesday’s events include a QPR-A-Thon, a crafting event with UCF’s Student Government Association in the Cypress Room, and a Movie Under the Stars at the CFE Arena. QPR — Question, Persuade, Refer — is a suicide prevention training, and workshops will begin at the top of every hour between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Thursday’s events will focus on #Adulting. Stroll through Memory Mall between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to learn about budgeting, putting out a fire, basic clothing repair and much more.
A full listing of the week’s events can be accessed through the UCF events calendar.
