Comedian Wendi Fox plans campus visit

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Wendi Fox, a dream leader and comedian, will offer "Saving Lives," a free program designed to inspire positive change while nurturing the human spirit through the power of humor, when she visits Slippery Rock University March 13.

The event is at 7 p.m., in the Smith Center Ballroom.

Fox said she is a "new breed of motivational speaker."

She is a fast-talking, stand-up comedy veteran and former high-risk drinker who transformed her near tragic party girl lifestyle into a personal and professional triumph.

She garnered attention on the national scene when she took her testimonial story and her comedic talents to the stage and won the hearts of college students across America with her powerful lifestyle reinvention message.

Her comedic brand of "inspirational reality" proved to be a game changer in the motivational marketplace when she began to bridge the gap between education, motivation and entertainment. More than two decades later, she has become one of the most successful and longest running drug and alcohol prevention and responsibility campaigners in college history.

A living legacy in the field of motivational arts, Fox has led a personal empowerment and social safety movement that continues to deliver progressive programs, powerful campaigns and entertaining keynotes that save life's, create positive change, and nurture the human spirit.

The Slippery Rock Alcohol and Addictions Coalition, SRU President's Commission on Disability Issues, SRU Student Counseling Center and SRU Student Health Services are sponsoring her visit.

Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
