Substance abuse is a key issue that we strive to prevent at Manhattan College. Some of the ways we educate our students about drug and alcohol use are:
Alcohol-Wise Program:All incoming undergraduate students complete the Alcohol-Wise program, a one-hour online course about alcohol abuse prevention that is designed specifically for college students.
Designated Drug and Alcohol Counselor: One of our staff counselors provides drug and alcohol education presentations in the residence halls each semester and works privately with students who have alcohol and drug-related concerns.
Motivational Mondays Group:The Counseling Center hosts a weekly drop-in group for students to discuss issues surrounding alcohol and drug use/abuse.
Parent Outreach:Letters are sent to the parents/guardians of incoming freshmen asking that they collaborate with Manhattan College in speaking to their sons and daughters about decisions regarding alcohol consumption while in college.
Drug and Alcohol Infractions
Students who are involved in drug/alcohol infractions are sent for a mandated assessment to the Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor.
