Rethinking Drinking Safety Fair

Alcohol Awareness Month is celebrated annually in the month of April. Every year, we plan an event that raises awareness of alcohol-related issues that affect college students and the community.

Past Event Details

We host a Rethinking Drinking Safety Fair every April where we connect students with USF offices to learn about responsible drinking tips and upstander (active bystander) behaviors that will keep you and our campus safe.

Themes were:

  • Non-alcoholic mocktail bar
  • Party Hosting 101
  • Mock sobriety tests
  • Alcohol impairment goggle activities
  • and much more!

We also partnered with Title IX REPS for a Rethinking About Drinking: Happy Hour Edition in the Koret Lodge. The event aimed to promote safe and healthy drinking both on and off campus while being inclusive of folks who do not drink, for any reason. We had trivia, giveaways, and mocktail demonstrations in Koret Lodge to learn more about reimagining happy hour, safe consumption, and creating safer campus culture. Join us for some music, merriment, and fun. 


According to the ACHA National College Health Assessment, a survey conducted in Fall 2015, USF students engage in many responsible drinking behaviors. Some of the findings:

  • 44% of USF males and 37% of USF females do not drink alcohol.
  • A majority of USF students use a buddy system.
  • A majority of USF students eat before or during drinking.
  • 99% of USF students do not drink and drive.
