What is the 21st Birthday Project?
The main theme of this particular project is to remind students that their 21st birthday does not equal 21 drinks, while including some tips to help them on their way to becoming a well-educated, responsible drinker. This initiative is one program that is part of a larger mission to promote health and wellness at Stetson.
What do I get?
Students will receive a packet of information from their Residential Advisor (or in their campus mailbox, if a commuter) prior to their 21st Birthday.One aspect of this packet is a Birthday card. The inside of the card will have a Happy Birthday Wish from the Office of Health & Wellness, Stetson University's official alcohol policy and a question for a raffle.
This question is about the BAC for their individualized sex and weight. For those who wish to participate, they will be asked to answer the question and return it to the Office of Health & Wellness. These students will be entered into a drawing to win a Simon Mall Gift Certificate.
What it is not:
The information presented is not intended to challenge a students' decisions about alcohol drinking. Nor is it intended to be a treatment tool .
What's in it?
Besides the birthday card and the question for a raffle prize, there are also 5 color printed flyers within the card which are as follows:
1. 8 Truths and Myths about drinking
2. Tips to Control BAC/BAC influences on driving
3. Male/Female Alcohol Impairment Chart/Serving Size Guide
4. Alcohol Poisoning/ BAC and Behavior
5. References and Resources/Date Rape Drugs Information
