Sober & Fabulous
When you think of college, often the assumption is that most students partake in alcohol or substance use; and although that is what most students think, the truth is that most actually do not participate often or at all.
Whether you simply do not like alcohol and substances or you have other reasons for abstaining from them, our programming offers events and ideas to enjoy socializing and fun — alcohol and substance free.
