Hello NOMA Nation!
The SSU Alcohol and Other Drug Committee is pleased to present National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week 2021. The theme is Save A Seawolf and there will be several informative and fun events to help our community learn more about alcohol and drug abuse in college communities. Please check out the events list below and attend some. This information you learn could help you Save A Seawolf.
Save A Seawolf Alcohol Awareness Week brings awareness and responsibility where alcohol consumption is concerned. Our observance always takes place the week prior to Halloween, as we know that is a high risk time when it comes to college aged students and alcohol use/abuse/misuse.
We also will be highlighting events and activities that can serve as alternatives to drinking. Things like working out, Movie nights, trivia nights, poetry nights, laughing and much more!
If you are able to attend and/or incentivize your students to attend events we'd appreciate the support!
Dr Joe Puentes will discuss key myths and facts of college drinking, alcohol and drinking dynamics specific to the athlete experience, and considering the goal of more fun and less harm when it comes to partying. There are some core myths and athlete specific dynamics that are underneath many of the problems athletes experience with alcohol. An aim of the presentation is to uncover these, raise awareness of how they might be getting in the way, and give athletes, coaches and staff the knowledge to navigate these challenges more successfully.
