Alcohol is actually a “depressant,” even though it doesn't often appear that way when you see JHU students dancing in the streets or using their neighbor's bush as a bathroom at 2:15 a.m. Alcohol impairs a person’s judgment, therefore causing them to act out of character. This is a cause for concern when the neighboring communities of Johns Hopkins University are disrupted in the middle of the night or the wee hours of the morning by student’s actions. So if you choose to drink alcohol, to avoid noise complaints and negative opinions of Hopkins students from neighbors, stay in the Blue Zone. The Blue Zone is considered to be a safer drinking level where a person's Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) remains under .06.Students can still enjoy a night out at the bar or a party, but without the consequences. Just another reason to STOP @ BUZZED. Remember no level of drinking is considered safe while operating a vehicle so never drink and drive.
Stop by the CHEW table today in Levering from 11-12 to pick up a BAC card or come by the CHEW office.
