Drugs and Alcohol

Our Drugs & Alcohol Team cares about issues involving the use and abuse of drugs & alcohol in a university setting. This dynamic team of students adopts a peer to peer education method to talk to students on campus about how to drink properly, safer partying tips and tricks, study drugs and their effect on one’s health and much more.

Meet our team at our weekly event Happy Hour, where you can get free mocktails and learn about safe drinking. See the upcoming events tab on the main page for more details.
