1,700 college students die each year as a result of alcohol misuse. The average college student drinks 3 times more during spring break than they would during a normal weekend. Students who usually abstain from drinking often drink during spring break 50% of all emergency trauma cases had alcohol in the picture. Think about it like this, how much fun will the night really be if you feel sick after & can’t remember what you did?

Midterm Study Tips
There are many simple things that can be done to study more efficiently. Making an outline of the topics that you will need to know is a great place to start. If writing out flashcards does not work for you, try free online flashcards from study websites such as Study Blue. Be sure to take a 10-minute break every hour. Reward yourself with a treat like a Hershey Kiss every time you finish a section. And most importantly, be sure to sleep!
