Think Safety First
An estimated 599,000 college students suffered alcohol-related injuries nationwide in 2011.
Approximately 1,800 college students die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries each year.
Strive for a Healthy Body and a Healthy Mind
One long island ice tea cocktail has up to 520 calories. That’s the same caloric content as a Quarter-Pounder with cheese from McDonald’s.
Do you think light beer will help you cut back on calories?Think again.Just one 12 oz Bud Light has 110 calories, but most people don’t have just one beer. If you drink five bottles of Bud Light you will consume the same number of calories that are in a small, healthy meal.
Save Your Money
If a student goes out to drink 3 nights per week and has 3 drinks per night, they will spend about $2,000 each semester.
The cost of replacing your lost cell phone is $100-$400.
The cost of missing 1 class due to a hangover can be as high as $200.
