Student Affairs will host an alcohol awareness water pong tournament on Wednesday and Thursday, April 15-16, beginning at 11:00 a.m. each day on the West Patio.

Grab a friend and sign up at the Student Affairs Office (Room M2820).  How much is really consumed during a normal game of beer pong?  What you don’t know can hurt you.  Drinking too much alcohol increases the risk of poor health, injuries, violence, liver disease and some types of cancer.  Be informed and make good decisions about consuming adult beverages.  The “winners” of each game - water pong, quarters and flip cup - will earn an opportunity to defeat Mario Kart with beer goggles on.  Prizes will be awarded to the first-place team.

For more information, or to inquire about accommodations, please contact Student Affairs at student.activities@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5668.
