Remember to:
Switch between alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (if you do plan on drinking)
Eat food

Of all things, be safe!

General Assembly - Reston VA

Hey Frostburg, 


This past weekend, representatives from the BURG Peer Education Network attended the BACCHUS Network's annual General Assembly. Over 650 students, facility, and staff members from across the nation gathered for this peer education conference. Our 13 representatives attended sessions, speakers, and meetings in hopes to share information about what we do on our campus and to learn some new tools and techniques that we can bring back to our campus. 


Also at this conference, our network was nominated for a number of awards and individual positions. Our own Sheldon Jackson, who serves as our Recruitment chair and last year's Area 12 SAC representative, was elected for one of two Student Trustee positions for the upcoming year. Also, Don Swogger, our wonderful and fearless leader, received the Outstanding Advisor of the Year Award! And to top it all off, the BURG Peer Education Network received the Outstanding Network Affiliate award for the second year in a row! 


This was a wonderful weekend of learning, sharing, networking, and celebrating!
