Alcohol and Drugs

Fortunately, if they drink, most USF students drink in moderation. At the same time, abuse of alcohol and other drugs causes or contributes to significant harm for a sizeable subset of students and those around them. These problems include alcohol poisoning, poor academic performance, accidents, and sexual assaults.

Parents can play an important role in helping students make good decisions in relation to alcohol and other drugs. We encourage you to talk your student about the risks associated with drinking and drug use.

CAPS offers services to those struggling with an alcohol or another drug problem. If you are concerned about your son or daughter’s drinking or drug use, please contact us for advice.
