Parents and Families
Greetings Wake Forest University Parents and Families
College is an exciting milestone for both you and your student. It is a time of new experiences, a time of transition, and a time to stay connected. If you have already spoken with your Wake Forest student about alcohol great; however, it is a good idea to revisit the conversation. You may need to adjust your communication style as your student develops greater independence. If you have not spoken with your college student about drinking it’s never too late to have the conversation. While we are committed to making a difference with our students, we also understand that you are the first line of defense against alcohol misuse and abuse.
Before coming to campus, all first-year will complete the AlcoholEdu for College curriculum. The content found on Everfi’s AlcoholEdu® for Parents and Families website is designed to support your conversations about alcohol to help shape the decisions your student must make in college surrounding alcohol use.
The content includes
- An overview demo video that provides you with an overview of the course experience your student will be moving through including the AlcoholEdu for College course structure and key concepts.
- Helpful resources, such as tips on parents’ and families’ roles in transition to college, talking to your college student about alcohol, warning signs of an alcohol problem and links to additional resources.
