And just because it's back-to-school time, we thought it was important to include this guide to safe drinking, especially for our freshman readers. We usually don't cover this stuff on CF, but we all know underage drinking does happen on campus. If you are going to drink, it's SO important to know your limits, and stop before you have too much. Alcohol poisoning is very real, and we don't want it to happen to any of you.
