Did you know that 93% of CU Boulder students find it acceptable to not drink at a party? Many times, students come to college with expectations around drinking, partying and what it means to be a college student. We may assume that everyone drinks or parties, that it’s normal to party every weekend or that people will judge us if we choose not to party or use substances. Take some time to reflect on any assumptions you may have around party culture. Where do they come from (family, friends, shows, music, etc.)? Is that what you want your college experience to be like or do you have a different vision in mind? Challenging your assumptions and thinking through what you want your college experience to look like can help you make more informed choices around partying
