UCF is joining universities across the nation and recognizing National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week [NCAAW] by sponsoring programs and educational initiatives aimed at raising awareness of alcohol issues on campus.

Scheduled events focus on encouraging alcohol safety and personal. NCAAW is held during the 3rd week of October each year, decisively a time when the academic calendar is marked by social activities like football, homecoming and other holidays which typically concern public health issues such as excessive drinking.

UCF is focusing on some of the risks associated with excessive drinking and the affect they could have on a student’s life. The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities Title IX and Orange County Sex Crimes Squad have partnered to provide a discussion on Drinking and Legal Consent. Highlighted events as follows:
