A Few Too Many…Our Campus Culture of Alcohol

September 11, 2013 at 12:35 pm

USC Upstate Spartan Speaker Lecture Series presents “A Few Too Many…Our Campus Culture of Alcohol” by Dr. Lori Hart on Wednesday, Sept. 18at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the Humanities & Performing Arts Center (HPAC) Theater.

 Results of recent studies have found that high-risk drinking is among the most dramatic problems facing college campuses. Students spend more on alcohol than they do on books. Fraternity and sorority members drink more than their non-Greek peers. And, athletes are drinking just as much. So, now, what do we do with this information? This keynote focuses on the culture of alcohol, providing activities that get students talking and feeling empowered to do something about high-risk drinking on their campus and within their own life. Focused on harm reduction, Lori provides concrete steps men and women can take to reduce risks.

 Dr. Lori Hart has an undergraduate degree in Education from Auburn University, a master’s degree in Education from the University of Montevallo and a doctorate in Higher Education from Georgia State University. An avid participant in the fraternity/sorority community, Lori has served as an active volunteer for Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity in a variety of roles and, currently serves as the Director of Prevention Education for Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity.
