Alcohol Awareness Week events announced

With Alcohol Awareness Week at Pittsburg State University set for next week, the Substance Abuse Focus Group is preparing activities designed to remind students to be careful when consuming alcohol.

“RU Connected?” is the theme for the 2007 National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Campaign, which encourages students to make connections with friends and stay in safe social situations when alcohol is present. The message is simple – don’t drink to excess, don’t drive after drinking, and don’t ride with a driver who has been drinking.

To recognize Alcohol Awareness Week, PSU has a number of events planned:

Weeklong Daytime Events: The film “Spin the Bottle: Sex, Lies, and Alcohol,” will be presented at the U-Club in the Overman Student Center at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. Pepsi products and SafeRide koozies (foam containers that keep beverages cold) will be given away from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday on the Oval.

Evening Events:
Monday, Oct. 15 - At 8 p.m., Mike Green will speak on “The Four Stages of Drinking,” in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom.

Tuesday, Oct. 16 – Free miniature golf will be held for students from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Four Oaks Golf Course.

Wednesday, Oct. 17 – Free barbecue will be held at 5 p.m. for students at the Gorilla Village, sponsored by GAMMA (Greeks Advocating Mature Management of Alcohol).

Thursday, Oct. 18 – A volleyball game will be held at 7 p.m. for residence hall students at Weede Gymnasium.
