Free soft drinks, food, and door prizes will be available at Green Zone mixers held 4-6 p.m. at College Hill Tavern on the first Fridays of February, March, and April.

All students are welcome with Lafayette ID; only those 21 and older may drink alcohol.

Green Zone refers to the concept of “Staying in your Green Zone” or between the 0.00 and 0.59 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.

“The idea with Green Zone is that below 0.06 blood-alcohol concentration the stimulating affects of alcohol happen but negative consequences are not likely,” explains Timothy Silvestri, coordinator of Drug and Alcohol Services in the Lafayette Counseling Center. “It limits the negative consequences that affect academic performance. When people go past a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.06, the alcohol tends to affect their performance the next day.”

A collaborative effort of Lafayette Activities Forum and the Alcohol Oversight Committee, Green Zone events are designed to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for participants.
