EPIC means epic and therefore Booshawa means Epic. Here’s the official Urban Dictionary Definition: Booshawa
WHY BOOSHAWA? It’s simple, we think the things we are doing are epic but epic wasn’t an “edgy” enough word for us :P. Read on to find out what’s Booshawa about Peer Health and the Tobacco Free Coalition!
As a sub-grantee of the Buffalo County Tobacco Free Coalition, UNK Peer Health Education has taken on the task of helping to educate students on the dangers of tobacco use, and is attempting to change students’ perceptions regarding high risk behaviors among their peers.
We love to find the most random yet fun activities to do as an alternative to high risk behaviors. One of our new favorites is “planking.” What is planking you ask? It is an activity originating in North East England consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the internet is an integral part of the game. Recently one of our own managed to plank a watermelon stand in a grocery story! BOOSHAWA!
