Written by Emily Bonoyer

Willimantic, Conn. - In a recent study conducted by the Oregon Gambling Addiction Treatment Foundation, many pathological gamblers report having started gambling as early as age 10. In an effort to combat problem gambling, SWAG (Students Witnessing Addictions to Gambling) at Eastern Connecticut State University will host Gambling Awareness Week from March 31 to April 3. SWAG is a group of six social workers working to educate the Eastern community on the warning signs and issues of problem gambling. The public is invited. Admission is free.

On March 31 and April 2, "Free Hotdog Day" takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. on the lawn in front of Webb Hall.

Also on March 31, from 7 to 9 p.m., Lori Rugle, problem gambling services director for the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), will speak on problem gambling in Room 219 of the Student Center.

On April 1, at 7 - 9 p.m. "Pizza Movie Night" will be held in Room 219 of the Student Center. The movie "21" will be shown. Event organizers will also give away free food, t-shirts, and much more.
