alcohol Health Services Brings Blood Alcohol CD-ROM to Campus

Student Health Services recently sponsored a visit from the Blood Alcohol Education Truck and its interactive cybercafe to educate students about how alcohol can quickly affect their blood alcohol level. In the cybercafe students use an interactive CD-ROM to see how a specific type of drink, or a certain number of drinks, affects their intoxication level based upon several factors including their weight, gender and what they have eaten. The CD-ROM is available at Student Health Services in Morewood Gardens. University Police officers offered a hand by conducting field sobriety tests for students who were wearing "fatal vision goggles." The goggles simulate different intoxication levels.
