Ways to Raise Your Voice and Take Care of You and Your Friends!
PLAN: Set a drink limit, know what and how much you’re drinking, stick to 1 drink per hour and no more than 3 total drinks per occasion (for women) or no more than 4 total drinks per occasion (for men.)
BE A BUDDY: Don’t ever let friends drink too much, drive buzzed or drunk, ride with someone who’s been drinking, or become a victim of sexual assault.
Raise your voice and intervene immediately!
DESIGNATE A 100% SOBER DRIVER: Be or choose your designated driver for the night before you head out, call a taxi, or find a safe place to stay for the night.
Never drive or ride with someone after drinking.
CALL FOR HELP: If you or a friend are in an unsafe situation or are concerned about alcohol poisoning, immediately call for help.
Call your Area Coordinator or Public Safety’s dispatcher at 610-902-8245. Off campus, call 911.
TALK IT OUT: If you are concerned about a friend’s drinking, talk to him/her or to a trusted professional who can intervene. Seek help if you are worried about your own drinking.
SHOW RESPECT: Be respectful of others’ decisions to drink responsibly or not at all.
Respect yourself by making healthy, safe choices – and always feel confident to raise YOUR voice when needed!
