Party Smart Sycamores

Student Health Promotion is committed to student safety during homecoming. An opportunity for early intervention is offered to students on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, 11:00am-2:00pm in Hulman Memorial Student Union, Dede II.  Participants will take the Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT-10) and have the option to discuss the results and receive education resources with a SBIRT trained facilitator to receive a free piece of pizza.

Homecoming is a time of celebration. Indiana State University promotes responsible drinking, through its Designated Walker and Sober Ride programs.

Sober Ride

Sober Ride will be entering its 9th year of operation with Homecoming 2019, providing free transportation to the campus area. Sober Ride will have three buses providing safe rides Saturday, October 12. 2019.  Sober Ride program is sponsored by Zink Distributing, Hi 99 WTHI, 100.7 Mix FM, 102.7 WBOW, 98.5 The River, WIBQ-Talk Radio, ISU Public Safety, ISU Student Health Promotion, Office of the Dean of Students, and the Division of Student Affairs.

People who are concerned about driving themselves or riding in a car with another driver who may have been drinking can walk to marked stops along Wabash Avenue to board the Sober Ride bus. This is a safe ride program to Memorial Stadium and campus within Terre Haute. The service is not a shuttle service to bars and parties.

Designated Walker Program

The Designated Walker program is an example of students taking care of each other. Though The Walk is not sponsored or endorsed by Indiana State University, we want to ensure that our community is able to safely make it to Memorial Stadium for the Homecoming game. Designated Walkers can still accompany their friends and have fun on The Walk and at Homecoming. Designated Walkers just don’t drink. Volunteer for the Designated Walker Program here.

In addition to enjoying beverages provided by Pepsi and Student Health Promotion, Designated Walkers attend a training where they receive information about alcohol education, Indiana Lifeline Law, and bystander intervention techniques. Designated Walkers receive breakfast, a free t-shirt, and community service hours for participating.  

Learn how to drink reasonably, responsibly, and respectfully.
