About OneQuarter of College Students Report Having Academic Consequences Because of Drinking
People think that drinking is a huge part of college life, but we all know that college is much more than just drinking. We understand that you are hard pressed to make it through college without attending at least one college party. Hanging out with friend at parties is a fun part of the college experience but this often involves alcohol, so it’s important to know how to party wise.
Here are a Few Tips On How To Party in College and Stay Safe:
- Don’t drink on an empty stomach. Why? Because you will get drunk really fast.
- Avoid drinking games. I know, beer pong is fun, but your body can’t process all that alcohol in a short amount of time.
- Women do not process alcohol as effectively as men. They get drunk twice as quickly, and sober up twice as slowly. Ladies, don’t try to keep up with the boys.
- It’s OK not to drink. Really, trust me, it’s OK.
- Don’t leave your friends alone, you arrive together and you leave together. Some friends even designate a code word before going to a party. So if they start to feel uncomfortable in a situation, then they use the code word and everyone knows it’s time to leave.
- Alcohol poisoning is real and can happen to anyone. Almost 600,000 students are injured—and about 1,825 students die—as a result of alcohol poisoning and alcohol-related accidents, including motor vehicle crashes. Follow these tips if you suspect alcohol poisoning
