Rethink That Drink

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 the majority of students use alcohol in low risk ways.  In fact, 57%* of our students have less than two drinks in a typical week! We want you to be prepared to make the best decisions possible so you can be successful at NDSCS and after graduation.  *2014 NDSCS NDCORE Alcohol and Other Drug Survey
