5 Ways to Avoid the Back-to-School Cold

1. Hand Sanitizer is your best friend

Keep one in your purse, your book bag, on your desk, wherever you can. Use frequently and in excess.

2. Sneeze into the crook of your arm or a tissue

Just not your hands. Or into the air. Or the shoulder of the person next to you on the bus.

3. Get up to date on all of your shots

President Obama is. No, but seriously. It’s flu season so get to the local drug store and get your flu shot. Unfortunately you’ll have to see your doctor for those other pesky shots.

4. Wash you hands.

Remember when we said ‘Hand sanitizer is your best friend’? Well soap and water are like your bffs from pre-k who you don’t see quite as often as hand sanitizer (thus it’s awarded best friend status) but who you always have a lot more fun with when you do meet up. Maybe you should try to get together more often?

5. Quit sharing food and drinks with your friends

They probably wouldn’t share theirs with you, anyway.

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
