The 21st Birthday Project

The main theme of the 21st Birthday Project is to remind students that their 21st birthday doesn't equal 21 drinks, to give some tips to help them on their way to becoming a well-educated, responsible drinker. This project is part of a larger mission to promote health and wellness at Stetson University.

What do I Get?

Prior to their 21st birthday, students will receive an email with information and; residents will receive a special gift from thier residential advisor, and commuters will receive a special gift at the Hollis Center. The email includes:

  • A special birthday message from the Office of Wellness and Recreation and Housing and Residential Life
  • A copy of the university's official alcohol policy
  • "21st Birthday Survial Tips"
  • Important references and resources

The information presented in the packet isn't intended to challenge a student's decisions about drinking, nor is it intended to be a treatment tool.

If you've recently turned 21, have not received an email or special gift, and would like to receive one, please email wellnessandrec@stetson.edu.
