Alcohol and Other Drug Educational Resources
The Office of National Drug Control Policy reports that a quarter of college students
face negative academic consequences due to drinking, such as missing classes, falling
behind, and lower grades. Substance use on campus poses significant risks, from academics
to health and safety. At Kennesaw State, our approach focuses on two key elements:
- providing recovery-informed education to college students and
- advocating for cultural changes in substance use norms.
We emphasize peer-to-peer educational models, effectively engaging students in reevaluating
their perceptions of substance use to promote a healthier campus culture. Get more
information on alcohol and drug resources available to all KSU students!

of individual and community recovery, and share their discoveries to influence recovery-related
policies and practices.
