First Year Experience


As part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, the University of Pittsburgh requires each new member of the community to complete AlcoholEdu for College – an online, non-opinionated, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu will empower you to make well-informed decisions about alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of your peers.
