Our Approach to Alcohol

Let Us Be Clear ThumbnailGCF ThumbnailLifeline Law ThumbAwareAwakeAliveLogoThe prevalence of alcohol on college campuses is a reality. Within the framework of one's personal values, Butler students will make choices about whether to consume or not. The University provides education about alcohol's effect on the body, about the potential consequences of use and misuse, and about how to recognize when someone needs medical intervention. We encourage students to make safe, healthy and legal choices.

Educational Programs

  • Incoming students are asked to complete three online modules in MyStudentBody: Alcohol, Drugs, and Sexual Violence.
  • Within the first week of arriving on campus in August, incoming students participate in a peer-led conversation entitled Red Cup Culture to converse about the campus social scene.
  • Residence life staff, PAWS/GEAR peer health educators, and Greek leaders host activities throughout the year.
  • Students found responsible for violations of the alcohol policy may be directed to:
    • Online educational  modules.
    • An in-house alcohol seminar or a mandated alcohol assessment.
    • The Community Restoration Project, a three-hour campus clean up activity.
    • Take the Challenge, a four-hour workshop led by Butler Challenge Education staff.
