RANDY HAVESON: PARTY TIME!
Party with a Plan! We have rules for driving and rules for sports, but until now there have been no rules for drinking. You’ve heard “just say no.” You’ve heard “be responsible.” But what does that really mean? Find out how to be responsible, moderate, or social as a drinker, if you choose to drink at all. Randy Haveson has been working with college students on the issue of alcohol and other drugs since 1991. His approach is straightforward, truthful, and enlightening.

UNSPEAKABLE ACTS
