Alcohol 101
Alcohol 101 is a university course offered by the Counseling Center designed to educate participants about the effects and consequences that result from alcohol use and abuse. The class is designed to prepare students to make informed decisions regarding their personal alcohol use to avoid the negative consequences associated with alcohol misuse. Students are also introduced to the resources that are available on-campus and in the community. Through discussions and interactive activities, students develop a deeper understanding about their personal choices regarding the use of alcohol.   

Alcohol 102
Alcohol 102 is a one-on-one, introspective meeting with a Counseling Center therapist to discuss personal alcohol usage. The meeting is designed for students who receive a second alcohol violation and have attended Alcohol 101 in the past. During the meeting, the student and staff member will discuss such topics as decision making, the student's values, and future goals.

Drug 101
Drug 101 is a university course offered by the Counseling Center designed to educate participants about the effects and consequences that result from drug use and abuse.
