Alcohol and Substance Misuse and Abuse
BGSU has a long-standing commitment to addressing the impacts of alcohol and drugs on its student body. The potential impacts of alcohol and drug use can be catastrophic to the life of college student’s health, relationships, academic performance, and future goals. While data demonstrates that most BGSU students make responsible choices related to alcohol and drugs, there are many that do not. Contributing factors to these negative choices include stress, a belief that all students are engaging in those behaviors, and lack of accurate information about alcohol and drugs and the consequences of their use.
BGSU engages in multiple strategies in the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse. These strategies include social norming campaigns, educational and awareness programs, enforcement programs, and alternative programming.
