No, seriously, I'm not kidding. At all.
Next week, Syracuse University's mascot, Otto the Orange, will deliver a series of public service announcements about the swine flu, said Carol K. Masiclat, associate director of communications for student affairs at SU. The mascot will appear in campus e-mails, on posters and in placards in SU dining halls, imploring students to wash their hands, visit the health center when sick, and use disinfectant on tabletops.
TNIAAM has received an exclusive first-look at the posters that will be going up all over campus. They deliver a stark and honest message that drives home the importance of preparing yourself against swine flu.
