St. Patty’s day is filled with friends and celebrating the Irish heritage, but can also be a time when college students have one too many green beers. Similar to homecoming,  Borough and Campus police will be out in full force.  Take extra precaution, and if you are going to cosume alcohol, don’t press your luck! Play it safe and use these tips as a guide to stay safe and out of trouble!

  • Eat a substantial meal with protein and fat within an hour of going out.
  • Alternate your drinks with water.
  • Set a limit and stick to it.
  • Go out with your friends, stick with your friends, and leave with your friends

Want to celebrate without the risk? Ask your RA if your residence hall is offering any programs. McCarthy Hall is sponsoring FREE Root Beer Pong at 8:00pm. Sykes Student Union will be hosting Harry Potter and the Golden Ram at 8:30pm on Thursday March 17. Stop by for FREE Butterbeer Pong, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans, and a ride on the Mechanical Whirling Wizard Broomstick. There will be a costume contest with prizes for the winning student! The SAC Movie this weekend is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 so be sure to stop by Harry Potter and the Golden Ram before or after the movie!
