Getting Real About Drug Use

For many students, college is the first time they are living on their own and with that responsibility come major challenges. For some, this is the first time they have to use their own judgment and moral compass to navigate the world of drug and alcohol use. With so many other new responsibilities like managing their own schedule, passing their classes, and maintaining a social life, sometimes it’s easier for students to give in to peer pressure and partake in alcohol and drug use based on what their friends, sorority sisters, or fraternity brothers are doing. This talk focuses on real talk about the norms and standards of these decisions and helps students best make their own decisions on this complicated topic without shaming them or taking away their agency and freedom.
