Zombies, Alcohol and You

While in college, you will be faced with many choices and your decision-making skills will be challenged in both academic and social settings. Our goal is to help enhance your ability to make safe and healthy choices in college, particularly related to alcohol.

We respect your right to make your own choices and support those who choose not to drink.  Above all, we aim to create a community in which the behavior of a few does not infringe upon the right of all. To help foster that environment, we are taking one of the nation’s most proactive stances on alcohol abuse, in addition to other issues on college campuses including sexual assault.  Nationwide, the statistics on college campuses are staggering:  Seventeen hundred students die each year in alcohol-related incidents, 600,000 suffer alcohol-related injuries, and 700,000 are assaulted by someone who has been drinking.

To address the issue of college drinking and to promote responsible behavior, it is The College mandates that all entering students complete the online educational program, Zombies, Alcohol and You.  Zombies incorporates contemporary research and is driven by cutting-edge educational theories and approaches, including social norms theory and motivational interviewing.
