Have you ever felt that your weekends are always the same and you want to do something different? Something new? Something fun? Change It Up is a student organization that works to provide various activities and fun events to students as an alternative to going out on the weekend. The goal of the student organization is to connect students who have similar interests, whether they are substance free or not, so that they can spend time together and have fun. Over the summer, the student organization went through complete rebranding. Formerly known as Fun Without Drinking (FWD), or “Forward,” the student organization wanted to eliminate the negative connotations that went along with that name. They often ran into a problem where students who did drink felt that they weren’t welcomed.
