    PubH 1003 Alcohol and College Life

    Attention Sophomores & Freshmen: Don't miss your opportunity to take "PubH 1003 Alcohol and College Life," a one-credit web course offered to both freshmen and sophomore students. That means almost all learning will take place via the World Wide Web, and not inside a traditional classroom.

    Combining the experience of undergraduates with the knowledge and expertise of an award winning faculty member this course gives a unique and unbiased look at alcohol and other drugs in the campus experience.

    Fifteen lessons cover a range of topics centering on alcohol in the context of college. Each lesson is comprised of an online "lecture" and readings.

    Our goal is to give students a look into the rewards and pressures of freshman year, particularly around the subjects of socialization, drugs and drinking. Guides to specific concepts include audio clips from older students who offer first-hand insight into campus life from a student perspective.
