St. Patrick’s Day activities offer residence students a sober alternative

According to Ontario’s ministry of health, alcohol is the most commonly-used drug among the province’s youth, and alcohol-related trauma is a significant and preventable cause of death among young Canadians.

That is reason enough for the University’s residences to host I Clover Sober during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, says Lynn Charron. Team lead for Residence Life, she says the project provides opportunities to have fun that don’t include alcohol, and educates students about staying safe if they do drink.
