Alcohol Awareness Week a Great Success

The JSU Peer Educators would like to thank everyone that participated in Alcohol Awareness Week 2008.

The week-long schedule of events was hosted in conjunction with The Bacchus Network's National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. More than 390 students signed pledge cards, affirming their commitment to avoid drinking and driving. The Fatal Vision goggles and INTOXICLOCK were available for students to simulate the effects of alcohol on their bodies.

On Tuesday, October 21, students had the opportunity to tour one of the Alabama State Patrol's "BAT Mobiles," which allows state troopers to conduct roadside breath alcohol tests of suspected drunken drivers.

The Peer Educators would also like to thank our co-sponsors for Alcohol Awareness Week: Counseling & Career Services, Alabama State Troopers, and Delta Zeta. A special thank you is extended to Howell Body Shop, Sodexho and University Police Department for their cooperation. This week would not have been nearly as successful without the partnership and support of these organizations.

Photos from Alcohol Awareness Week will be available soon at the JSU Peer Educators' Web page.

The Peer Educators would like to remind everyone to make smart decisions about their health and safety throughout the year, not just during Alcohol Awareness Week. Remember: "It's a friends thing. Don't drink and drive!"
