A collaborative project of the Student Health and Counseling Center, the Dean of Students Office and the Safer California Universities Project funded through a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).

Cal State Fullerton offers a variety of programs and services to assist students in making positive and healthy decisions about alcohol use, and preventing illicit drug use.

Presentations and Workshops

Presentations and workshops are facilitated by Health Educators and Peer Health Educators. To schedule a workshop or presentation, please contact Jackie Blyleven, Health Educator, at 657.278.7460, or email jblyleven@fullerton.edu.

Social Host Workshops: This training educates student clubs and organizations about responsible ways to host a party. It includes an educational component about the ways alcohol affects the body and prevention techniques to avoid over-consumption. Additionally, the training provides an interactive component that shows the definition of what is considered ďone standard drink.Ē

Alcohol Awareness: This classroom presentation offers an educational component of the positive and negative consequences of alcohol use, as well as a discussion about responsible drinking. Also covered are ways to avoid overconsumption, preventing alcohol poisoning, and how alcohol use can affect academic performance.

Illicit Drug Use: Illicit drug use is often misperceived as being a part of the college experience. Reality is, drug use is not the norm on our college campus but it is still dangerous. Learn the warning signs, symptoms and effects of drugs on individuals and the social environments they corrupt.

Alcohol 101+ : Alcohol 101 plus is a program which focuses on reducing high-risk alcohol consumption among college students. It takes you on a virtual campus tour in order to educate students, educators and the general public about responsible drinking behaviors. From dealing with the challenges of hosting safe and responsible parties in a Greek community setting, to the frequent peer pressures that athletes and first year students face, this product provides students and educators with thoughtful and realistic situations for reflection and discussion.

Individual Appointments

The Student Health and Counseling Center offers appointments for students to reduce alcohol use and quit smoking. To schedule an individual appointment, please call Jackie Blyleven, Health Educator, at 657.278.7460, or email jblyleven@fullerton.edu

Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS): BASICS is conducted over the course of two 50-minute interview sessions (with an additional 50 minutes allowed before or after the first interview for the student to complete self-report questionnaires). The first interview consists of assessing the studentís consumption pattern. The second interview consists of a discussion surrounding the negative consequences associated with alcohol use and other consequences that may contribute to the studentís health risks. Research indicates that two meetings are generally enough for students to make substantial changes in their drinking patterns and to reduce negative consequences of alcohol use. In some cases, BASICS may be the first step toward seeking additional services in order to initiate or maintain changes.

Student Organizations

There are several student clubs and organizations which focus on preventing alcohol and drug problems among college students. A brief description of three organizations is listed here.

Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol (GAMMA): This is a student organization housed in Greek Life that provides programs, readily available information, and resources for promoting a safe student lifestyle. Its concerns for the campus are based on supporting alcohol management, as well as teaching others about date rape drugs, the risks of drinking and driving, and other issues that may arise in any college students' life. Meetings are open to all CSUF students. For more information on GAMMA, contact the Greek Life Office at 657.278.3211.

Peer Health University Network (PHUN): PHUN is an organization that plans and implements alcohol and drug awareness on campus, and is housed and supported by the Student Health and Counseling Center. Peer Health Educators assist with campus presentations, provide informational outreach events, and coordinate town hall meetings on drinking and driving, plan safe spring break fairs, and safer sex events. Meetings are held each Friday during the semester and are open to all CSUF students. For more information on PHUN, contact Jackie Blyleven, Health Educator, at the Student Health and Counseling Center, 657.278.7460, or email jblyleven@fullerton.edu.
