PRINCETON, N.J. - Princeton University is distributing 5,000 cups that encourage students not to share their beverages as a way to curb the spread of meningitis and promote safe drinking.
The red cups bear the message: "Mine. Not Yours." They also include markings for the standard size for alcoholic beverages and the phone number for the Ivy League school's public safety department.
Princeton health educator Kathy Wagner tells The Times of Trenton the school thought it was a good way to remind students not to share their drinks.
Junior Kathryn Scott isn't sure how effective the program will be because she says it's unlikely she'll remember to carry the cup with her everywhere.
There were five cases of meningitis on the Princeton campus between March and June.
