The Golden Bear community is committed to maintaining a campus where all students can live, learn and thrive in a healthy, enjoyable and safe environment.
Also, as you well know, whether you abstain or not, alcohol consumption can have a significant influence on our lives and in the lives of our family and friends. Therefore, WVU Tech has joined together with many top schools in the country in adopting AlcoholEdu for College as a central component of our alcohol prevention initiative.
AlcoholEdu is designed to empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol, recognize dangerous behaviors surrounding high-risk consumption and help you cope with the drinking behaviors of your peers. The program has been especially useful to college students seeking ways to balance their new freedom living away from home with the need to establish a healthy lifestyle as young adults.
To this end, we require every new incoming West Virginia University Institute of Technology student to take AlcoholEdu for College.
