Alpha Phi Sigma, Rowan University's Law and Justice honor society, will help the University community learn more about the dangers of alcohol on April 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Pit of the Chamberlain Student Center. 

"The goal of the event is to learn about safe, responsible drinking in a fun way. Students will learn to calculate body alcohol content based on body factors, drinks, and food. They'll gain skills and knowledge to make safe decisions," says Nadine Connell, assistant professor of Law and Justice Studies.

By wearing beer goggles, students will simulate the dangers of driving drunk.  They'll have the opportunity to play the video game Mario Kart while wearing the goggles as they gain an understanding about how drinking and driving affects motor skills and decision-making.

Also, Sgt. Kevin Flanagan of the New Jersey State Police Breath Test Unit will demonstrate Breathalyzer tests from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For more information on the event, contact Natalie Schell-Busey, 856-256-3538 or schell-busey@rowan.edu.
