Party Smarter Week Aug. 26-30

Party smarter, not harder! UAB‘s Wellness Promotion department will educate students on how to do just that during Party Smarter Week! Research shows that the first six weeks of college are the high risk "red zone", especially for incoming freshmen. This is a time where students engage in higher-risk behaviors such as binge drinking and drug use. There are also more incidents of sexual assault. Party Smarter Week will intervene during the first week of school and educate students on alternative ways to enjoy the college experience!

Special Features: Recstravaganza | Rock Out the Red Zone | Free food | Training sessions
