Alcohol & Other Drug Education

Here at the university, you will probably find yourself in situations where you will be making decisions about drinking- at parties, on dates, or even in your room. It is best to make careful, thoughtful decisions about alcohol before you drink. Remember that the legal drinking age is 21 years old. If you do decide to drink, please DRINK RESPONSIBLY. There are serious health risks and behavior problems associated with the use of alcohol in the collegiate environment. In support of responsible management of alcohol, Health Promotion & Wellness provides numerous resources and support services available to our students, faculty and staff. For your care, store the following important numbers in your cell phone.
