CSUS events promote responsibility

As part of its efforts to reduce dangerous drinking, California State University, Sacramento will host a series of events during the next week.

National Alcohol Screening Day will be observed on campus from 10 a.m. to
2 p.m. on Thursday, April 3, in the University Union lobby. Students will be able to evaluate their drinking habits, learn about the effects of alcohol and talk with a healthcare professional.

Safe Spring Break activities will encourage students to make responsible decisions when it comes to drinking. Joel Goldman will speak on “Sex Under the Influence,” at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 7, in the University Union Ballroom. Goldman, who is HIV positive and traces many of the behaviors that led to his infection to his college days, discusses how even students who understand safe sex can make deadly mistakes when mixing sex and alcohol. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, in the library quad, Safe Spring Break activities include games, freebies, free “mocktails” and the “Safe Spring Break” pledge. Students taking the pledge will be entered into a national drawing to win a Jeep Wrangler.

Although studies show that CSUS students drink less than college students nationwide, the University is committed to educating its students on the dangers of alcohol consumption.
