It is important for students to know the facts about high-risk alcohol use and be aware of their ability to work with others to make their college campus a safer and healthier place to study, grow, and live. Alcohol use on campus affects all students, even those who abstain. Those who choose to drink, particularly at a high risk level, may experience negative consequences including academic, health and legal repercussions.
Students can play an active role in preventing high-risk and illegal alcohol use on campus. Consider engaging with Joes P.E.E.R.S or taking a leadership role within a student organization to educate members regarding alcohol. Students are encouraged to utilize on-campus resources, such as the Student Wellness Office, Office of the Dean of Students, Student Health Services and Counseling, if they or a friend has a question or needs assistance regarding alcohol education.
The following information is provided for Missouri S&T students to assist them in making responsible choices regarding alcohol and to increase awareness regarding the effects and consequences associated.
