An Alcohol Safety Fair will kick off National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week on Monday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union Trimble Lounge.
There will be confidential alcohol screenings, free anonymous HIV testing, entertainment, prizes, information and referral to community-based activities and resources.
The purpose of the fair is to reinforce personal responsibility and to showcase healthy lifestyles free from the abuse or illegal use of alcohol and to combat negative stereotypes of college drinking behavior.
The event will educate students about the consequences of excessive drinking that can occur on a personal, academic and community level. It will assist students in making healthy and safe decisions and to develop the skills to adopt lower-risk drinking behaviors, including the choice not to consume alcohol.
The fair is sponsored by the University Counseling Center and Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention, along with the Division of Student Affairs, UT Police Department, Student Recreation Center, Sexual Assault Education and Prevention, and Not on My Watch.
