Great American Smokeout

The Great American Smokeout, the nationwide annual event that encourages tobacco users to quit for 24 hours, will take place Nov. 19.

Ekklesia, the campus ministry for churches of Christ, and students from COMM 471: Persuasion Theory are sponsoring turkey bowling from 12-2 p.m. on the Mall by the fountain. Using a frozen turkey, participants will attempt to knock down the bowling pins representing cigarettes. This encourages people to defeat the addiction “cold turkey.”

The School of Health Sciences and Education will be providing free hot chocolate and hot apple cider at the event.
