Don’t Be That Guy/Girl Week

Untitled design (3)

Have you ever been to a party where there was that one guy or girl that was so intoxicated they could not walk, talk or was just plain belligerent? We all may have a story similar and no one wants to end up being “that” guy or “that” girl. The good news is, the University Wellness Program and Health Services is providing us with events all next week to help us know our limit and to help us help our friends so that we won’t risk ruining our image!

Next week is “Don’t Be That Guy/Girl”(DBTG) Week. It is a comprehensive alcohol prevention program aimed at educating students on alcohol consumption and the risk factors associated with drinking alcohol. The program has two main goals: to give alternatives for students who are underage or prefer not to drink and to provide awareness on safe partying and alcohol responsibility for those that do. This is accomplished through fun, educational, non-alcoholic tables and events. The events for DBTG Week are:
