Student Activities Council will be hosting an event next week called “Intersection of Two Lives.” Students, faculty and community members are invited to attend. The presentation about a drunken driving accident is scheduled for 9 p.m.Tuesday in McKibbin Recital Hall.

Director of Student Life Randy Flowers said the presentation shows that this can happen to anyone, even himself.

“This event is based around a story involving an accident from poor decision-making with alcohol. It actually took place in Lawrence, Kansas,” Flowers said.

This will be the second year for BU to host this presentation, in which SAC partners with detective Jay Armbrister of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. The presentation is Armbrister’s personal account of the incident.

“Only about 50 people went last year, so there is still a lot of people who could benefit from this event,” Flowers said.

Junior MacKenzie Pfeiffer is head of the committee that organized the event. The committee contacted Armbrister to confirm his involvement, secured a place to hold it and made sure they had a projector and a screen for the event. To get the word out, the organization has used flyers and social media.

“We’ve also sent out emails to all of the Greek presidents asking for their participation as well as emailing all the Salon teachers and Salon leaders to get them to get the word to their freshmen,” Pfeiffer said.
