"I'm not here to kill your college experience... I just want you to survive it." -Pat Spady
A college student is expected to juggle 15 credits, a job, a social life, a personal life, a family life, and then find time for everything else - believe it or not - we get it.
How you choose to explore your college experience is YOUR CHOICE- But take it from those who have survived...
You are expected to become an expert in time management while maintaining good grades, and there is no question that becomes stressful. Sound familiar?
Before going out to a party, consider the alternatives - especially if you are under 21.

Some things to consider...
Having a police record does not look good for future employers.
It's ok to get to know your neighbors - they could be a great resource or future reference.
Drinking impairs your judgment, increasing the likelihood that you will do something you regret.
One out of three 18-24 year olds admitted to emergency rooms have injuries from being intoxicated.
It takes one hour for alcohol to filter out of the body per standard drink - "sober up quickly"? I don't think so.
Tolerance is actually a warning sign that you're developing more serious problems with alcohol.
