Party Smart

Party Smart!
There are specific rules and laws on and off campus regarding drinking. If you decide to drink, it is your responsibility to know them. If you decide not to drink, you’ll be in the company of other EMU students making the same choice.

If you do decide to drink, doing so in moderation is the best way to avoid unwelcome trouble. Speed of consumption is what trips up most students, so it’s a good idea to employ a few proven strategies for slowing yourself down. Some of these include: eating before or while drinking, pacing yourself to no more than one alcoholic drink per hour, asking friends to look out for you and to speak up if they see you are drinking too fast, and avoiding drinking games, pre-drinking, and taking shots.

Consume alcohol for the right reasons at the right times. As a general rule, don’t drink when you are too angry, too lonely, too hungry, or too tired.

Know when to leave the party. If the party goes too long, gets too loud, or becomes too big, the police (or in the dorms, mentors) are likely to make an appearance. Your best bet is to leave before they arrive.

Know how you’ll get home before you go out. If walking, make sure you have someone to walk with. If riding, make sure you have a designated driver.
