Abstract

This article describes an intervention for college students cited for alcohol-related infractions of the student code of conduct. First-time offenders are required to attend a three-hour class that includes educational, attitudinal and skills-based activities. Students also complete self-report measures of quantity/frequency of consumption and are mailed personalized drinking feedback one week following the group session. A preliminary evaluation of the program is described and the intervention is discussed in relation to other programs available on campus.
