AlcoholEdu for College

To provide you with important information to keep you safe and healthy at North Park University, we require each member of the incoming class to complete a special online program called AlcoholEdu for College. Whether you drink or not, this course will empower you to make informed decisions about alcohol and prepare you to better cope with the drinking behavior of your peers.

This online, non-opinionated, science-based alcohol abuse prevention program was developed by a company called EverFi and is used at schools around the country. It is confidential and personalized: North Park University won't know what answers or information you input. We'll just get a report that you have completed it, and data about our incoming students as a whole group.

The course includes a variety of tools and alcohol-related information sources, including videos, blogs, a map of U.S. laws concerning blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits, and strategies and tips for safe partying and helping a friend in trouble.

AlcoholEdu for College is completed by hundreds of thousands of students each year. More than 200,000 participants were confidentially surveyed and reported the following results:

  • 75% said AlcoholEdu provided helpful information and 66% said they learned new facts about alcohol
  • 77% reported that AlcoholEdu prepared them to identify signs of alcohol poisoning
  • 64% said the information presented about BAC would help them create a plan for making safe and healthy decisions
