Have you ever been watching a zombie movie or TV show and wondered how you would fair if you were stuck in the same situation? I have often, and have recently come to the conclusion that as student affairs professionals we are better off than the average person when it comes to living in a post-apocalyptic world. We’ve got the the resources and the experience, because let’s face it, come April we all feel like zombies (@clconzen).
Do you know more SAPro survival skills? Post them on the comments below! Also, I HIGHLY suggest checking out the Disaster Preparedness Simulation Exercise created by a UF employee in 2009. Read all about the controversy is caused on the SunSentinel.com. In that regard, I would like to say that this was created in jest and is in no way associated with the college at which I work.
Below this infographic I have listed all of the great tweets that contributed to the creation of this post. Thank you to everyone who gave me their ideas! A enlarged version of the converted H1N1 sign is also posted below.
