CHOICES About Alcohol
CHOICES is a 2-hour program that focuses on making safer decisions regarding alcohol consumption. Rather than focusing on abstinence, this program encourages a harm-reduction approach to drinking. While it is important to recognize the illegal nature of any underage alcohol use, it is equally important to provide students with accurate information and strategies for reducing their risk if they choose to drink alcohol.
CHOICES is recommended for all students, especially those that are new to Rice. Participants can sign up for the class at https://signup.rice.edu/Choices/.
