Monday, January 23rd: Effective day for Wesleyan becoming a tobacco-free campus

Monday, January 23rd – Friday, January 27th: #IChoseWVWC Videos

To raise awareness and show support of the Tobacco-Free Campus initiative, students, faculty, and staff are asked to write a poem or change the lyrics to a song to include something about our tobacco-free campus or fresh air.  The poem or song must be presented via a video posted on social media using #IChoseWVWC. 

Each day, we will be challenging a specific group on campus to share their song or poem with the Wesleyan community.  It can be a single person, small group, or whole organization in the video. 

Monday – Greeks

Tuesday – Athletes

Wednesday – Staff & Faculty

Thursday – Student Senate & Student Organizations

Friday – Anyone in the Wesleyan Community

At the end of the week, a winner will be selected out of all video submitted.  If the winner is an individual, he/she will receive a $50 gift card to the Bobcat Den.  If the winner, is an organization or group, we will donate $50 to your organization or a philanthropy of your choice. 


Tuesday, January 24th – Cake Celebration & “Kick Butts” Cigarette Clean-up

At 4:30 PM, a cake celebrating our tobacco-free campus will be setup at the Benedum Campus Center.

From 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM, volunteers will come together to help rid cigarette litter on Wesleyan’s campus.  Students and organizations will be assigned a designated area of campus to cover.  Gloves and other supplies will be provided.
