1 of 8 | Our goal this year was to connect with students on a peer-to-peer level. 2 of 8 | A minisite was added to the existing Ferris.edu good choices site 3 of 8 | Students can participate in a chat room simulation, where the Debunker asks a question and the student responds. 4 of 8 | The debunker then responds with the correct answer in a conversational tone. 5 of 8 | The Tool Kit is a matchbook-sized envelope which contains a condom. It is designed to combat embarrassment students have when accepting condoms provided by the University Health Center by using discrete packaging and a humorous tagline. 6 of 8 | The Dealer is a card game with sixteen cards, each containing either a common activity and a way to make it more interesting. The player will deal the cards face down and draw a light purple card and a dark purple card, combining the two for an interesting, and legal, activity. 7 of 8 | The Drunk Dial is a card with telephone numbers for local taxicab companies. A student can carry this card a wallet or purse so they always have a safe way to get home. 8 of 8 | Large window clings will be placed on buildings around campus, using the same language as the Debunker. These will direct attention to the Good Choices campaign and the newly-launched minisite. They are printed on a transparent material that is visible only one-way.
1 of 7 2 of 7 | Using the slider, the user can rate how their day was, enter a comment, and see the new point plotted on a weekly graph. 3 of 7 | They can retrieve comments by tapping on the points on the weekly graph. 4 of 7 | The user can also set the range of the graph and view monthly, yearly, or other increments. 5 of 7 | By storing data from ratings, the comparison tool can be used to compare one set of data versus another. 6 of 7 | As shown here, a user can compare a specific month versus global statistics. 7 of 7 | On the global view, average global ratings are displayed, in a weekly, monthly, or yearly view. Tapping on a point causes popular words used in comments to appear, allowing users to discern why a particular point may have been good or bad.
