Before One More: Alcohol and Your Group
This session is intended to give your group feedback on the opinions of your members about alcohol and other drug use and how it impacts group cohesion, the image of your group, and the desirable/undesirable role alcohol plays for group members.

This presentation has been very helpful for a variety of NDSU groups and leads to plenty of open discussion. (60 minutes)
