Sip Tip: Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare?

Truth:  What percentage of campus students do you think, have never had alcohol?

According to the Spring 2012 survey, our student population thinks that only 2% of our campus hasn't had alcohol.  However, based on self-report information, we know that it is closer to 20% of students.  Around 1 in 5 students on campus has never had alcohol.

Dare:  If you choose to drink, we dare you to do so safely.  

If you choose to drink, we dare you to alternate alcoholic beverages with non-alcoholic ones (like water or juice), to pace yourself and space out your drinks over the course of the night, and to stay with your same group of friends for the entire time.

By taking on this dare, the chances of enjoying your night are greatly increased.  A person who stops at buzzed can enjoy the euphoria that drinking has the potential to provide while avoiding the downfalls of drinking too much (i.e. hangovers, injuries, etc).
