Cal State Fullerton is hosting its second annual Alcohol Awareness Week Monday to Saturday. The goal is to promote “Having Fun Without Drinking.”
A totaled car was exhibited Monday at Titan Walk to illustrate the dangers of drinking and driving. The display was hosted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).
“I know my friends go out and party then drink and drive,” said Yesenia Altamirano, 19, a CSUF political science major. “That’s one of my biggest fears–losing one of my friends.”
Alcohol Awareness Week features a wide variety of activities and exhibits promoting awareness of the negative effects of alcohol, including chalk murals, documentation of feelings with Clothesline of Regret, Impaired Driving Obstacle Course, Cookout and DRY Challenge, DRYve-in Movie Night, bowling, billiards and table tennis.
Raquel Leon, 23, a CSUF business management major, said, “I’m a driver, so seeing it (the totaled car) really impacts me. It makes me stop and think safety is really important while driving.”
