Students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the second Green Zone mixer at College Hill Tavern between 4-6 p.m. Friday.

Timothy Silvestri, coordinator of drug and alcohol services in the Counseling Center, notes there was strong student attendance at the first event.

“There were about 60 students there,” he says. “There was a chance to hand out BAC (blood-alcohol concentration) cards to all of the students, which is one of our key educational tools.”

“We want to have more faculty involvement,” he adds. “Students are trying to persuade more faculty to come.”

Green Zone refers to the concept of “Staying in your Green Zone” or between the 0.00 and 0.06 blood-alcohol concentration parameters. It is reported that students who remain in the Green Zone have more fun and experience fewer negative consequences in their academic performance and interpersonal lives.

Similar to the first event, Friday’s Green Zone event hopes to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for participants.

A collaborative effort of Lafayette Activities Forum and the Alcohol Oversight Committee, Green Zone events will become regular fixtures on campus with three to four per semester. BAC cards will be available at the mixer this Friday.
