party safe ambassadors
Ryan Conrad | senior, MCd biology
I chose to get involved with Party Safe because I wanted to challenge the misconceptions and stigmas around partying in the college setting. Having the opportunity to be both a student and work in Residential Life gave me insight into how having a healthy social life goes hand-in-hand with having a working knowledge on how to party and experiment safely. My goal is to spread awareness of Party Like a Slug and to ensure my fellow slugs always party safe!
Anna Maria Camardo | Junior, HAVC
I got involved... because I was impressed with the accessible and relatable resources they provide. I am especially impressed with the harm reduction philosophy promoted by SHOP and that the information provided focuses on safety and self-care rather than prohibition and intimidation.
Dre Felton | Junior, Neuroscience
I got involved because giving back to my community is something that has been hammered into my head since I was a kid...The UCSC community is and has been responsible for my growth as a human being and I feel indebted and want to give back.
Amira Wheeler | Senior, Cognitive SCIENCE
I got involved... because I love the concept of creating an open, safe, non-confrontational dialogue about drugs and alcohol. I am a firm believer in creating these sorts of environments on our campus instead of attacking students that participate in these activities.
Karthika Saravanavijayan | SENIOR, MCD biology
I got involved... because I am interested in health and I find it extremely important to be conscious of health in regards to drugs and alcohol. Coming together as a community around these issues, in which we aren’t conventionally expected to openly discuss, is fascinating.
Sanam Noorani | JuNior, Neuroscience & Env. Studies
I got involved... because SHOP provides great resources for students and I wanted to be part of the team that creates those resources. I am a huge advocate for partying safe and creating good habits.
