Tips on Alcohol Safety
More Water, More Fun
Hydrate well. And often.
Not only will this help you consume less alcohol, you’ll also thank yourself the next day.
Party smarter, not harder:
• Make sure you and your friends.
• Eat before or during your night out.
No one wins the pre-game.
Partying hard before going out can increase your chances of blacking out or alcohol poisoning.
Washington College has a medical amnesty policy.
Call 911 if you suspect alcohol poisoning. Turn the person on their side and stay with them until help arrives.
Check in with Each Other
Use the “Buddy System” where at least one friend stays sober. Watch each other’s backs:
• If a friend’s had too much to drink, make sure they’re OK.
• If they need help, make sure they get it.

Sexual Assault Awareness
Be a Better Wingman
Friends don’t let friends hook up
with people too drunk to consent.
If you see someone in a bad situation, don’t be afraid to step in.
Her Dress is Not a Yes
If someone tells you she’s asking for it, remind them:
Clothing isn’t consent.
Flirting isn’t consent.
Having too much to drink isn’t consent.
“Yes” is consent.
Look Over There!
Distraction is a great way to step in without being confrontational.
“Oh, you’ve met my sister/cousin/friend!”
“Hey, you have (class) with me, right?”
“Weren’t you in my peer mentor group?”
No Blurred Lines
You don’t know what they want unless you ask.
Spread the word: “Yes” is required!
Your Exam Didn’t Rape You.
Joking about sexual assault trivializes it.
When friends joke about rape, tell them to stop.
