After the holidays, college students throughout Kentucky and the United States will be heading back to campus for the start of winter semester. Whether you are hitting the books yourself or have a family member or friend who’s going back to studying, you can help improve their safety and avoid accidents with these tips:
- Understand the risks of drinking. Whether it’s underage or of-age drinking, excessive alcohol use is a temptation on many college campuses – and it’s one that can cause serious injuries or accidents if not controlled. Students under age 21 should avoid using alcohol at all times, and students 21 and over should practice responsibility if they choose to drink. For instance, make sure you have a sober ride home before you hit the bar or a party.
