be wise

The BE Wise campaign strives to generate awareness of alcohol poisoning, how to avoid it, its signs, and how to respond to it.

Self Assessment

Many students rely on the Internet as a source of information and self-assessment. Below is a list of several web sites that offer self-assessment opportunities. A brief description of each assessment is provided along with the link to the assessment itself. While there are many Internet sites that may be used for informational purposes and self-assessments, it is important to remember that online assessments are for educational purposes only. For a full assessment or assistance in dealing with substance use concerns, contact the Counseling Center (315)443-4715.
Below is an on-line screening quiz to assess your alcohol use:

Do you enjoy a drink now and then? Many of us do, often when socializing with friends and family. Drinking can be beneficial or harmful, depending on your age and health status, and, of course, how much you drink.
