Check out our Facebook page with the video by Coach Josh Pastner about "TRUE BLUE CHOICES."

“TRUE BLUE CHOICES” is a social norms alcohol education campaign delivered by the  Department of Athletics at the University of Memphis in partnership with the School of Public Health, Student Health Services, Student Affairs, and Orientation Services. Funding for this 3-year project was received from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).  The University of Memphis is one of 15 institutions, out of 53 proposals received, to be awarded CHOICES grants from the NCAA.

The goal of “TRUE BLUE CHOICES” is to educate University of Memphis students about responsible drinking by changing the way students view alcohol use. In general, college students think other students consume more alcohol than they actually do. Athletes will promote the message that de-emphasizes the role of alcohol on campus life and lower students’ expectations about drinking.

Did you know that 80% of University of Memphis students have NEVER missed a class as a result of drinking during the academic year?

Did you know that 80% of University of Memphis students have NEVER performed poorly on a test or important project as a result of drinking during the academic year?
