Facts on Tap

This program can be requested to help students feel more confident in making informed choices about alcohol. It is not meant to encourage or discourage the consumption of alcohol, but to provide relevant and accurate information about alcohol so students can make more informed decisions and support others in making informed decisions.

Through a variety of activities and discussion, participants will:

  • identify what one standard drink equals for beer, wine, and hard liquor 
  • identify the recommended BAC (blood alcohol concentration) to stay at or below in order to stay in the "sweet spot" if consuming alcohol
  • describe one or more benefits of staying in your “sweet spot” zone if consuming alcohol. 
  • list one or more protective behavioral strategies that can be used to prevent alcohol poisoning/overdose or other not so good things
  • identify at least two signs of alcohol overdosing/poisoning
  • demonstrate the proper steps of the recovery position 
  • recognize that the majority of UNI students consumed 4 or fewer drinks the last time they drank alcohol in a social setting.
