The ATOD Advisory Council helped sponsor the Aware, Awake, Alive program in conjunction with the office of Housing and Residential Life. The program consisted of a dance-a-thon which raised awareness about driving under the influence of alcohol. The Aware, Awake, Alive organization provided giveaways to encourage student participation. There were 168 students at the event. The students included those from clubs and organizations, students living in the residence halls, athletes and the general student population.

The office of Housing and Residential Life sponsored a program called "Name Your Poison" which addressed drug use, including prescription and illegal drugs.

For the last two summers, Mary Pope has spoken to every session of mandatory freshman orientation about her daughter's death due to a drug overdose. Her daughter was a freshman cheerleader on our campus at the time of her death. It is a very powerful presentation.
