Students Working to Put a Lid on Drinking

The What’s Your Cap? campaign aims to raise awareness and knowledge about the risks involved in the over consumption of alcohol and promote a culture of moderation on the U of S campus. The initiative recently released a How To Guide to aid post-secondary institutions and like-minded organizations in the creation and implementation of similar prevention campaigns. Filled with lessons learned, helpful tips, and what worked well, What’s Your Cap? hopes that this resource will be helpful and allow other university and college groups and others to tailor a campaign to their own audience needs.Visit the campaign website for more information!
