Lafayette College is committed to reducing the harm related to alcohol and other drug abuse while helping to create a safe and healthy environment for all of our students. We take a comprehensive approach to addressing the dangers of substance use both on and off campus through partnerships, programs, and services provided throughout the year.  This video was funded through a grant with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board and is part of larger social norms campaign.

Parent Resources

The College enlists parents help in combatting high risk alcohol or drug use by asking parents to have intentional conversations with their sons or daughters. In fact, these conversations are an integral part of our comprehensive strategy in reducing harmful consequences related to binge drinking and the rapid consumption of alcohol.
We provide this helpful guide as a way to start these conversations. Research shows us that these conversations between parents and their children are incredibly productive and change problematic behaviors.
