HIGH POINT, N.C., March 3, 2009 ? The Interfraternity Council at High Point University will host the “Save a Life Tour” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 4 in the Slane Student Center.
The event, a national drunk driving awareness event and simulator, is a service project sponsored by the IFC. The IFC held fundraisers and other various events in order to bring the program to campus.
“They have worked very hard to put on a meaningful and productive event,” says Meredith McCrea, Greek Life coordinator and resident director at HPU. “The group felt that it would be an important reminder of the dangers of drunk driving right before spring break. … They are hoping to make it a yearly event.”
