Rethink that Drink is a social awareness campaign aimed to reduce the negative effects associated with high-risk alcohol use among students.
At NDSCS, students have many choices to make from which Netflix series to watch next to their academic program to study. The choice you have to make about drinking alcohol is no different.
We know that the majority of NDSCS students don't use alcohol or if they do, are using in low-risk ways. In fact, for those students that choose to use alcohol, the average number of drinks per week is only 2.2! We want you to be prepared to make the best decisions possible so you can be successful at NDSCS and after graduation. *2020 NDSCS Student Wellness and Perceptions Survey
