Juices flowing among BYU students



    Juice booths, a weekend party and a juicemobile are a few of the activities planned to promote the health benefits of drinking Florida orange juice.

    Orange juice week has been taking place on campus through the Public Relations Student Society of America at BYU. Brian Anderson, Michele Davis, Scott Porter, Paul Walker and Greg Eppich are members of the campaign.

    Today a juice booth will be set up at 4 p.m. in the quad by the Richards Building during The Turkey Trot, BYU’s annual 5K run.

    The booth’s purpose is to inform students of the necessary nutrients for athletes provided by orange juice. Free juice will be given to runners and spectators.

    Juice booths have been set up throughout the week at the south entrance of the Harold B. Lee Library. Wednesday afternoon, an orange juice guru was selected to attract students to the booth.

    Shauntelle Rowberry, a freshman from Las Vegas majoring in communications, said, “I’m here to get people to the booth.” She said she was picked to be the guru after answering a survey about why she drinks orange juice.

    “You just gotta drink more. It’s good for you,” Porter said, pouring drinks behind the booth.

    Students stopped by the booth to taste some free samples of the Florida orange juice. Angie Hendricks, who graduated in history but continues to take classes here, came to drink some of the juice. “I don’t really know what’s behind it all,” she said.

    Saturday night PRSSA will be hosting the “November Jubilee,” a big bash and college dance night at Club Omni in Provo, according to a news release. The event will include performances from local bands like Randall Blithers, Honeytree and the Richard Pike Band.

    One dollar will be taken off admission for those who bring an empty Florida orange juice container for recycling. The jubilee starts at 8 p.m. The bands will be performing from 8 until 10 p.m.

    Prizes will be given away at Club Omni. Powerhouse Gym memberships, a sky diving pass, hang gliding vouchers, hats, T-shirts and Sundance, Rock Garden and Trafalga passes will be some of the prizes distributed.

    An old Volkswagen Beetle with a Florida orange juice logo will be seen roaming the streets throughout the week. The juicemobile will be giving away free refrigerator magnets, T-shirts and other prizes.

    One of the juice campaign’s contests is the search for the top ten uses of orange juice. Porter said the campaign would like to send a list to David Letterman.
