What is alcohol-wise?

Alcohol-Wise is an online course designed to engage college students in critical thinking about alcohol use, reduce risks associated with underage and high-risk drinking and contribute to positive social norms.  The course includes Alcohol E-Check Up to Go, developed by San Diego State University (also available on our website).  Prevention of sexual violence is addressed.  The course is delivered in two parts:  Part 1 includes questionnaires and the course content.  Part 2 is a follow-up that is taken 30-days after completion of Part 1.  This course is recommended for all new first year students attending ASU.
