Alcohol Awareness


Drinking culture is incredibly ingrained into university life. But statistics also show that a growing number of students no longer drink alcohol at all. We’re hosting a few events to remind everyone to drink responsibly, how to get home safely, busting some common myths surrounding alcohol and exploring other fun ways to spend your time - without alcohol.

But we’re not just doing that – why not see what the effects of alcohol are while playing Mario Kart? Why not try and win an amazing Go Karting experience? Even if you don't win there will be freebies up for grabs.

We hope that this campaign will introduce and embed a culture that students can have a good time without alcohol. So if you want to learn more about the effects of alcohol and have fun while doing so, come and join us for a week of fun and informative events.
