A week of events promoting responsibility, reality-based drug and alcohol education, and ending rape culture. DISCLAIMER: We neither condone nor condemn alcohol use- we merely recognize that it happens, and we should at the very least be aware of what's happening on our own campus and how to make it safer. We'll be tweeting alcohol facts all week!
