The time-steeped tradition of Spring Break at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) will be prefaced by a week-long information event, dubbed Spring Break Revolution, March 5 – 9 on campus.

 It is hosted by the Office of Student Conduct and Community in partnership with Student Counseling and Disabilities Services, Campus Safety, Housing and Residence Life, Student Success, Recreational Sports, Student Affairs, Student Health Services, student organization Wellness Education Leaders (WEL) and community partners.

The annual initiative promotes a safe and healthy Spring Break by simulating environments students may encounter during Spring Break, and the consequences of high-risk behavior.

Offerings begin Monday, March 5 in the Student Center (SC) Rotunda from 11:30 – 1:30 p.m. with a WEL-hosted Happy Hour and Staying Alive CPR Training.

On Tuesday, March 6, the Kinesiology and Wellness Center will host “The Game of Life” from 4-7 p.m.

 On Wednesday, March 7, an Information Fair takes place in the SC Rotunda from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.  The TLC Alcohol event will be in Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center (ZSC) 101 from 12 – 1 p.m., and features a drunk driving simulator, demonstrating the dangerous effects of DUI/DWI driving and "tunnel vision."  From 7:30 – 11 p.m., University Village hosts the Spring Fling, focused on sharing effective ways to stay safe and healthy during Spring Break for students living on campus.

On Thursday, March 8, the SC Ballroom will present the symposium, “The Opiate Crisis:  How Did We Get Here and How Do We Move Forward,” organized by the TAMIU College of Nursing and Health Sciences’ Dr. F.M. Canseco School of Nursing, and partners:  the Drug Enforcement Administration, Laredo Fire Department, Laredo Border Region, Laredo Rotary Club, and the Webb County Medical Examiner.

Throughout the week, WEL will host a "Empty Chair" of individuals who have been victims during Spring Break in the Senator Judith Zaffirini Student Success Center.

Community Partners in TAMIU’s Spring Break Revolution include Casa de Misericordia - Victims of Abuse Shelter; the District Attorney’s Office; Laredo Police Department; Laredo Medical Center - Trauma Center; Doctors Hospital; TXDOT - Traffic Safety Unit, and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
