    • Myths About Alcohol:

    • "Some people think alcohol is a stimulant, not a depressant."
    • "Some drivers mistakenly think that alcohol improves their driving."
    • "Some people foolishly believe that coffee, a cold shower, exercise, or fresh air can sober them up.“
    • Some Facts About Alcohol:

    • Alcohol is a drug, and it is a powerful depressant.
    • You must be of legal age (age depends on the state) to buy or be served any type of alcohol. In New York State as of December 1, 1985, you must be 21 years old. 
    • Beer and wine are just as potent as hard liquor:

      12 ounces of beer =
      5 ounces of wine =
      1.5 ounces of 80 proof liquor

    • Alcohol intensifies the effect of tranquilizers, while antihistamines may cause the effect of alcohol to sharply increase.
    • Alcohol is involved in:

    • 50% of all traffic fatalities
    • 50% of all murders
    • 33% of all suicides
    • 25% of all other accidents
    • Blue lights mark special twenty (20) safety telephones, indicated on the map below. Their use is not restricted to emergencies; however, you can use them to report incidents or suspicious people, or to ask for assistance or an escort.
    • At all blue light phones you need to simply push the button and the phone will signal University Police automatically and direct someone to you.
