This week was National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW). Northeast Community College’s Student Activities Council (SAC), the Health & Wellness and The Alcohol and Other Drug Committee put on “Sober in October” on October 21, 2015. Students learned the effects of alcohol by participating in several activities throughout the Ag Complex.

The activities included students walking on a line, driving and parking a golf cart while wearing Fatal Vision Goggles. A Solo-cup activity opened students’ eyes to the actual serving sizes of different alcoholic beverages.

Among the activities, there were two tables set up to inform students on different drugs and alcohol, and the Good Samaritan Law which gives intoxicated minors limited legal immunity when they seek help for themselves or anyone else who is in need of medical attention.

To help students see the importance of seat belts, Trooper Gena Jones was there with the Seatbelt Convincer. She said, “All day we can tell somebody ‘you need to wear your seatbelt’, but when they actually get on the Convincer and feel the jolt at 5 mph, they’re amazed!”

After finishing all of the activities on Wednesday, the nearly 200 students were given t-shirts, and the first 75 were given roadside car kits.
