Not in this scenario.
Voted one of Indiana University’s best welcome week events for students, “Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll” will take place this Friday, August 19, at Showalter Fountain from 12 to 3 p.m.
The event, designed to promote positive health choices, includes more than 30 student organizations and campus offices.
“Students who attend SDRR always comment on how fun it is,” said Debbie Melloan, co-organizer and SACS counselor. “Their level of awareness regarding alcohol, consent, and healthy ways to have fun on campus increases significantly. SDRR provides them with a lot of information they may not learn otherwise.”
This year, live music by DJ JEWELZ, water pong and flip cup games, trivia, drunk driving simulations, t-shirt and phone wallet giveaways, prizes, free snow cones, and more will set the atmosphere for this fun and educational experience.
“Students will have the opportunity to drive a golf car while wearing ‘beer goggles’ then receive a drunk driving citation to learn the legal consequences of drunk driving. They will also see what a standard unit of alcohol (beer, wine, or hard liquor) actually is, and learn how to use a free Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) app to estimate their level of intoxication,” said Chris Meno, co-chair and CAPS psychologist. “They’ll learn what exactly ‘jungle juice’ is, and find out what can happen if you mix prescription and over-the-counter drugs with alcohol, all while meeting campus resources and finding out how they can help a friend struggling with alcohol, drugs, mental health concerns, or sexual violence.”
