Campus Activities Board giving students “A Shot of Reality”
Each year, more than 1,800 college students between the ages of 18 and 24 die from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor vehicle crashes.
The Campus Activities Board’s spotlight committee hopes to further educate students about the dangers of alcohol with “A Shot of Reality,” an improv comedy show that features audience role-playing. Featuring free mocktails and gift card raffles, the presentation will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7 in the DiStefano Lecture Hall.
“A Shot of Reality” educates students about encountering alcohol in a college environment. Alternating between comedic improvisations, in which the audience participates, and educational sketches that drive home facts and statistics, the presentation is designed to make students laugh, think and inform their behavior toward alcohol.
The presentation tackles the topics of alcoholism, binge drinking, social mistakes, assault, health risks, drunk driving and more. The goal is to talk with students as their friends instead of preaching at them as their parents so that they will learn to take care of each other and themselves.
