Students learn about alcohol

The Health Promotions Office (HPO) will hold an interactive Skill Builder entitled “Beer and Booze 101-The Basics: A New Way to Look at the Old Information” on Friday, Sept. 28 in the Back Room of the University Center. This Skill Builder will challenge students to reexamine information they may already have concerning alcohol use and abuse, said Lenny Shible, Health Promotions specialist. “We’re not preaching to them, or judging the students in any way,” Shible said. Rather, he said the HPO staff just wants to make sure they provide information to students so they can make healthier choices. The Skill Builder will discuss the amount of alcohol that constitutes a drink, signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse, and available resources which students can use to receive help if it is needed. “Some students may find [the Skill Builder] interesting and have it benefit themselves personally, or have it benefit somebody else by talking to them about what they’ve learned,” Shible added. “Beer and Booze 101” is scheduled to be held from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Students who are interested can call 227-1771 or e-mail [email protected] to register. Registration is free.
