Sex Ed 101: Surviving the Weekend
7 to 9 p.m. | BPSC Grand Ballroom

The Student Activities Association presents Sex Ed 101: Surviving the Weekend. The presentation is a comedy-lecture by River Huston. Can you drink responsibly? Maybe, but it won't work to just say no. Huston has been speaking on alcohol awareness for over 20 years, and she has come to the conclusion the best thing she can do is to present tools on living in an alcoholic environment. From communication to abstinence, Huston give ideas on how to survive the weekend, the semester, the whole college experience in one piece. Through humor and audience participation she tries to reach every aspect of alcohol and drug use from problem drinkers, chronic consumption of weed, occasional partiers, binge drinking to those who choose not to drink or drug at all. As a recovering alcoholic who has not had a drink in over 25 years, she has seen and heard it all! Huston's best hope is to plant a message that when push comes to shove they have something to hold onto to get out of a bad situation, prevent a disaster or just wake up not regretting the night before.

For more information on River Huston, visit her website at www.riverhuston.com. For a good time, call (936) 468.1222 or visit www.sfasu.edu/SAA! Follow us on Twitter @SAA_1923!
