ATL Public Service Announcement: Wearing A Backpack May Be Hazardous To Your Health

Backpack Awareness Day
Join us in the Chapel Area
1:30-3:30 p.m.
September 20th

Tips to Prevent Back Problems:

– Wear both straps to distribute the weight evenly

– Wear the backpack resting evenly over the middle of the back. The backpack should not extend below the low back

– Adjust the straps so they are not too loose but still allow for free arm movement and ease in putting on and taking off the backpack

– Carry only those items needed for the day with the heaviest items closest to the back

– When selecting a backpack, choose one with

– A padded back
– Hip and chest belts
– Multiple compartments
– Reflective material to enhance visibility at night

Who knew that wearing a backpack could be so hard?
As weird Georgetown Law events go, Backpack Awareness Day isn’t as much fun as GULC’s yearly 1L moustache contest. That competition, which “renders the male 1L population even more unattractive than usual during finals period,” features “a dog show-style competition, kegs, professors judging, drunk spectators, 2L interlopers, and a Burt Reynolds commemorative plate for winner.”
But if you’re desperate for a way to procrastinate, perhaps Backpack Awareness Day will do the trick.
