Alcohol & Consequences

Drinking can impact your life in ways you never considered. People talk about blackouts, vomiting, and hangovers, but have you ever thought about how alcohol impacts your personality? Alcohol can change your mood, your impulse control, and your ability to stay out of trouble. Students can end up in OSI following a game day ejection, housing alcohol violation, or other alcohol related incident. They hold a conduct process to decide what sanctions are appropriate, including alcohol evaluations from the Counseling Center, restitution, educational coursework, or suspension.

Practice staying in control if you drink by knowing your limits and what works best for you. If you are concerned about yourself or a friends drinking habits, check out our alcohol resources or learn more about mental health and well-being.
