Party Smart

Tip 1

Step up for your community to help prevent sexual assault — see something, do something.


Tip 2

If hosting a party, make a guest list and make sure you know who is in your home. Someone could take your laptop or other belongings.


Tip 3

Know what you are drinking or serving. Avoid mysterious brews like jungle juice.


Tip 4

Don't serve alcohol to minors. It is a criminal offense, and you could be arrested.


Tip 5

Know your limits — drink responsibly or not at all. About 70% of OSU students choose not to drink, or do so safely.



Be an Active Bystander

Oregon State University believes in creating a safe community for everyone.

When beavers see something, they do something. When they hear something, they say something.

Beavers Give A Dam™ — it’s on all of us to prevent sexual violence.

Know the Signs of Alcohol and Drug Poisoning

If anyone exhibits the following signs of alcohol poisoning, call 911 right away and roll the individual on their side. By calling 911 for help, both of you will be protected from getting a Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP) charge.

  • Shallow breathing
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Cold/clammy skin
  • Pale or bluish color
  • Vomiting
  • Mental Confusion

Signs of drug overdose can be varied and depend on the drug ingested. They can include shallow breathing, clammy skin, loss of consciousness, vomiting, agitation and psychosis. When in doubt, call for medical assistance right away.



Have A Plan

Corvallis Police and Oregon State Police will increase their presence on Halloween weekend — make sure that you have a plan for a safe and enjoyable weekend:

  • Look into campus events
  • Know what friends will be with you
  • Find a culturally appropriate costume
  • Know where you are going when you leave your home
