Moderation in all things... particularly alcohol


The university festival Machikane-Sai and other events in the coming academic year will present you with opportunities to drink alcoholic beverages. Students are asked to keep the following in mind and to moderate all alcohol consumption:

Please remember the following!

  • It is illegal for persons who have not turned 20 to consume alcoholic beverages.
  • Binge drinking can lead to acute alcohol intoxication and even death.
  • Never pressure or force others to drink.
  • Driving a vehicle of any kind --a bicycle, motorcycle, or car-- after you have been drinking is a serious offense and can result in unexpected consequences.
  • It takes time for your body to rid itself of alcohol. If you should drink heavily, exercise caution and avoid activities such as driving even on the following day.
