JONESBORO – Arkansas State University will host Fresh Check Day — a concept created by The Jordan Porco Foundation and designed to bring the whole campus community together to “check-in” on the mental health and wellness of college students.
The Heritage Plaza lawn will be transformed into an expo-like atmosphere to bring together interactive exhibits combined with food, prizes and giveaways.
The event, on Wednesday, Sept. 18, has been organized by A-State’s Counseling Center with collaborating campus departments, student volunteers, and representatives of The Jordan Porco Foundation, according to Amber Long Martin of the Counseling Center staff.
Hours for A-State’s Fresh Check Day are 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., and admission is free.
The booths feature peer-to peer messaging in a positive, community-focused setting. Should it rain, the event will be held in Centennial Hall, third floor of the Student Union.
