ADAPT Class

The ADAPT class is a 90-minute alcohol education class covering the history of alcohol and the culture of drinking, the effects of alcohol on the body, negative consequences of alcohol, and strategies for drinking responsibly. Students must write a 1000-word reflection essay in order to complete the sanction. Students have said the following about the ADAPT class: “Although the ADAPT class was not something I was looking forward to in the beginning I was actually really glad I got the chance to go. There was a lot of really good information that I learned and found interesting" and "I was expecting to be scolded for my negative behavior but instead I left with a whole new understanding of how alcohol works."
