making the transition to college.

respect and trust.

• You do not have to drink or have
sex to have fun at LSU.
• Students who drink more than a
few drinks in a sitting tend to get lower grades.
• If you choose to be sexually active, practice safer
sex…EVERY time.

to have sex with you.

a bystander.

help you have the best possible college experience!
