Alcohol & Other Drug Education

Here at the university, you might find yourself in situations where you will be faced with making decisions about drinking - at parties, on dates, or even at home. It is best to make careful, thoughtful decisions about alcohol before or if you decide to 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, the department of 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.
