Every year the Health Education Office puts on awesome (and actually fun) events to give UNK students alternatives to high risk activities. Whether its an athletic event or a chill movie night, the Health Education office has an activity that will interest every student on campus. One of our most important programs gives students a safe, free ride home from the bars or a party. Feel free to check out all the programs our office has to offer!


OkSOBERfest is an event traditionally on or around Halloween where we provide fun alternate activities. In years past this has included: carnivals, fear factor competitions, haunted houses, casino games, and movies. Last year different organizations teamed up to make OkSOBERfest multiple nights of fun events, including a dance and tickets to KneeKnocker Woods.

Free Movie Showings

Health Educatoin Office hosts FREE movie showings traditionally at Kearney Cinema 8. UNK students get a chance to kick back and see movies before they leave the box office, all while enjoying free popcorn and drink.

Back to School Bash

This event is typically hosted on the first day of classes in the fall as a fun way for UNK students to hang out and get to know each other. The Back to School Bash looks different every year, but a few things always remain the same: it’s FREE, it’s FUN; and it’s on campus.

A place where you can make a difference.

..and so much more!

The Health Education Office is also available to give presentations to classrooms over topics including alcohol education, bystander intervention training, and healthy living in college. We also have teamed up with Kearney Cab to provide the Safe Ride Program. This program allows UNK students to receive free cab rides home to reduce on the possibilities of drinking and driving.
