Alcohol, Tobacco, Other Drugs

Nearly all college students experience the effects of alcohol, whether or not they actually drink. The problem with college drinking is not necessarily the drinking itself but rather the consequences that result from drinking excessively. If you choose to drink, we want to help you do it safely and responsibly.
