Alcohol and College Life

At Macalester, we are committed to living and learning in community. This means sharing a commitment to the health and well-being of ourselves and others. It also means considering how our actions affect others as we work together to keep our community healthy and safe.

The community impact of alcohol and other drug use is definitely a part of the conversation, even if you plan never to use any of these substances yourself. This is why Macalester requires all incoming students to take the AlcoholEdu for College online course. The course will include surveys to help personalize the experience and measure attitudes and behaviors. Macalester will only receive information about the first-year class as a whole and will never see individual student responses.

On Monday, August 2, 2021 you will receive an email from Macalester College with the following subject line: Online Course Assigned to You by Macalester College. This email contains a link and instructions to complete the alcohol and other drug abuse prevention module. Follow the instructions in that email to complete this requirement.

The deadline to complete the online course is Thursday, August 26, 2021.
