Don’t Meet the Parents!

Alcohol Education

Students take only one focused class while they are on campus during January, and many organizations do not meet during this month as a number of their members are away from campus. This combination may lead to more free time, and some students will choose to consume alcohol at a greater rate. As a College, we continue […]
