Alcohol-Wise is typically used for incoming first-year students to reduce risk for freshmen and positively impact campus culture. When implemented effectively, the course educates students about the harmful effects of alcohol, raises retention rates, and acts as a prevention tool for future alcohol-related violations.
Alcohol-Wise is tailored for each user. Students receive personalized feedback and access to self-referral tools, as well as pre- and post-course assessments to provide measurements of behavior change and knowledge gained. The course clarifies personal choices about drinking habits and attitudes, and how alcohol can affect academic progress and social behavior.
