Student Affairs will host an alcohol awareness water pong tournament on Thursday, April 16, beginning at 11:00 a.m. 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.  Prizes will be awarded to the first-place team.

For more information, or to inquire about accommodations, please contact Student Affairs (Room M2820) at student.activities@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5668.
