Warm weather presents risks

Welcome, spring!

As the weather gets warmer, it becomes an exciting time for many students; fresh air, the semester winding down and summer vacation is on its way!

As we all get excited for some warmer weather, it is important to remember that when we have fun, we also need to be safe and make healthy choices.

Please remember that if you are going to go out with friends or decide to have a drink at home, make sure that you have food in your stomach, drink plenty of water, know what you are drinking (mixed drinks) and know how much you are drinking.

Also, when you go out with friends, take a quick minute to come up with a plan so that if you are going to drink, you have a buddy or someone who will watch out for your safety. Make sure you have a plan on how to go out and get home safely, whether that be setting up rides or getting a taxi, or walking with a friend.

When you are going out, take a minute to think and plan ahead in order for you and your friends to have fun but also stay safe and healthy.

If you are ever concerned or worried about alcohol or other drug related problems in your life or if you are worried about a friend or loved, one, please visit me in my office in the Center for Student Involvement. Remember, we are here for you!

Have fun and stay safe!

Patrick Monette
AOD Coordinator, Center for Student Involvement
