If You See A Problem
What should you do if you see a problem?
If you recognize signs that your child may be abusing alcohol (e.g., lower grades, never available or reluctant to talk with you, unwilling to talk about activities with friends, trouble with campus authorities, serious mood changes), it is important to talk with your student about the issue. You can help them understand the difference between high risk drinking and low risk drinking.
If you don't think you are getting through to them or you continue to have concerns, we encourage you to contact the college about your perceptions. You can call the Student Affairs Office, Counseling Center, or the hall director in your student's residence hall. Staff in any of these offices will begin the process of assisting your son or daughter.
It is very important to continue to stay actively involved in the life of your son or daughter. Even though they may be away at college, they continue to be an extension of your family and its values. By partnering with us, we can work together to create a successful college experience.
