Alcohol related problems such as student deaths, hospital transports, injuries, and overintoxication have a direct impact on the wellness of students at Cal. Not only is bingedrinking a physical health hazard, but it also can have devastating social and mental consequences for the both drinker and those around them. Cal has a problem with alcohol that students are willing to address, with change that comes from within the community. Our House by PartySafe@Cal is an approved, vetted, and assembled campuswide campaign that would benefit greatly from additional funding from the Wellness Fee. If successful, alcohol related problems at Cal will be greatly reduced, improving not only the wellness of our students, but also our relationship with the larger Berkeley community and our reputation as a top university.
