Recognize the link between serious campus problems and alcohol: vandalism, date rape, poor academic performance, injuries and death.
Inform yourself on the existing alcohol-policy on campus. Ask the appropriate campus contact to meet with your group to review and explain the policy. Is it being enforced fairly and effectively, and if not, why not? How could it be improved? Does your school use prevention programs or resources funded by the alcohol beverage industry? Should it?
Hold a public forum or debate on the policy (invite campus officials, student opinion leaders, and student government representatives to take part in a panel).
Critically examine school traditions that may fuel binge drinking and explore how they can be revamped or retired.
Form a Campus Social Board to create popular late-night social and recreational options that fill a need on campus. Survey students on the quality of campus social life -- what do they think of it, and how would they like to see it improved?
Write a joint or individual
Argue for creation or expansion of substance-free housing options.
Support a ban on alcohol sales, advertising, and promotion at college sporting events.
Eliminate alcohol industry spnsorship of college sporting events and other activities.
Call for the elimination of cheap drink promotions if they are still permitted on your campus or in the student newspaper. Publicize and circulate and petition to gather support.
Support and help promote alcohol education and awareness programs, including alcohol abuse prevention, intervention and treatment options.
