Alcohol and Drug Education Programs

The UW Oshkosh community is concerned about the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs. We make it a part of our mission to help provide a helpful and healthy atmosphere in which our students and faculty and staff can live, learn and work.

Michael P. Haines, coordinator of health-enhancement services at Northern Illinois University says things are changing all over the country. Haines says "the vast majority of students don’t harm themselves or others as part of their drinking behavior, and that is the best-kept secret in the country. Instead of bemoaning drinking, colleges should take every opportunity to point out that the movie, Animal House, is not reality. The percentage of their classmates that get blitzed on weekends is in fact very low."

At UW Oshkosh 30 percent of our students don’t drink alcohol. And of those that do drink alcohol, 65 percent report having five or fewer drinks a week. So even though some students think, "everybody is getting drunk," in reality many students are attempting to avoid the problems associated with drinking by choosing not to drink or by setting healthy limits. Success or the lack of also can be attributed to the misuse of alcohol.
