2. AlcoholEdu for College

As part of our commitment to your success, we provide engaging educational tutorials to help you with your transition to college. These courses aim not to preach but rather to teach the facts about alcohol, its effects on the mind and body, and sexual assault prevention. Whether or not you drink, AlcoholEdu for College empowers students to make well-informed decisions and provides some simple strategies to help keep you and your friends safe.
