CHOICES for students, and your class

Update | Wednesday, February 5, 2020

Counseling Services will be offering an alcohol awareness and harm reduction program for students known as CHOICES. The program incorporates personal reflections on alcohol use, facts, risks, and harm reduction strategies for students who choose to drink alcohol. In some instances, it might also qualify as class credit for attendance in CHOICES.

While it is essential to recognize the illegal nature of any underage alcohol use, it is equally important to provide students with accurate information and strategies for reducing their risk if they choose to drink alcohol. “CHOICES About Alcohol” is a 90-minute alcohol abuse prevention and harm reduction program for college-enrolled students.

There are three open sessions if students are interested in participating this semester: 

Tuesday, February 11 from 3-4:30 p.m.

Thursday, March 19 from 3-4:30 p.m.

Wednesday, April 8 from 3-4:30 p.m. 

All sessions will be held in Nestor Hall 227.

CHOICES in your classroom
Counseling Services can also present the CHOICES program by request for your classroom. The CougarConnect link to request a presentation is here.

Counseling Services will review all requests submitted, which are subject to the availability of staff, so schedule well in advance to secure a date.

Recommend student volunteers for CHOICES
Counseling Services seeks student volunteers to help with tabling events for CHOICES for the following dates:

Monday, February 10 from 9-11 a.m. in the Delaware Hall lobby

Wednesday, March 18 from 9-11 a.m. in the TL lobby

Tuesday, April 7 from 9-11 a.m. in the TL lobby

Students will be responsible for marketing the CHOICES program to other students, providing information on the program, keeping track of student interactions, and placing flyers around campus regarding CHOICES, among other duties.

If you have students that would be interested in signing up for tabling duties, please have them call Counseling Services at 614-287-2818 or stop in at the office, Nestor Hall room 010 (lower level) to register. They can also email our office specialist Shelby Delp at to answer any questions and to specify which events they can assist with.
