Active Shooter

Availability of alcohol + Absence of parents + Desire to fit in = Potentially risky drinking decisions.

The misuse of alcohol by both underage students and students over 21 remains a problem for some in spite of laws, campus policies and college programs. So, when talking to your son or daughter about choices with regard to alcohol, you may want to discuss the differences between low-risk and high-risk drinking and abstaining.


Low-Risk Drinking

  • Thinking about whether you will drink and what you will drink before the party
  • Being 21 or older
  • Eating a meal before drinking
  • Drinking no more than one drink per hour; maximum three for women, four for men
  • Always knowing what you are drinking
  • Alternating alcohol-free drinks throughout the evening
  • Before you go out, knowing how you will get home safely
  • Knowing that abstaining is the safest choice

High-Risk Drinking

  • Chugging, playing drinking games, drinking shots and drinking anything out of a punch bowl, trough hose, or funnel
  • Drinking to get drunk (intoxicated)
  • Driving after drinking or riding with someone who is under the influence
  • Drinking too much or too fast on an empty stomach
  • Going to parties where people drink too much
  • Not knowing what is in your glass or leaving it unattended
  • Mixing alcohol with medications or illegal drugs

For further information, contact Student Affairs or Health and Counseling Services.

Alcohol Poisoning

Please help us spread the knowledge of alcohol poisoning symptoms. Call 911 if a person exhibits any of these symptoms:

  • Unconscious or semiconscious
  • Breathing less than 10 times per minute or irregular breathing (check every two minutes)
  • Cold, clammy, pale or bluish skin
  • Can’t be awakened by pinching, prodding or shouting
  • Vomiting without waking up
