This research-backed course prevents risky drinking on campus and helps students reach their academic goals. It’s not a “just say no” program. The course is confidential, personalized to students, and a key part of BU’s alcohol prevention program.

Tips for Taking the Course

You don’t have to complete it all at once

Each section ends with a “Next” button. Be sure to click this button before you close the browser or you may have to repeat that section again the next time you log in.

Know that it’s private

Your answers in the course are private, so it’s okay to be honest. BU only receives responses from the student body as a whole. We do not see students’ individual answers.
