Change up the generic college party scene. Big house parties and crowded bars may seem like the standard social environment for alcohol, but they don't have to be. If you choose to drink, next time think smaller. Have a small group of friends over where each person brings a bottle of wine, a 6-pack of their favorite beer, or their favorite mixed concoction. Not only can you socialize with your friends (and actually be able to hear your conversations), but you get a chance to try some new drinks besides whatever cheap stuff comes out of the keg. If you're feeling creative, have a theme. Maybe have a luau and mix up some frozen drinks (you can even make some sans alcohol). Big, crowded venues can make for dangerous drinking. Smaller atmospheres better allow you to stay in control. Think small, drink small. Stop@Buzzed!
