5-SURE on Foot

Active bystanders provide a documented and proven solution toward shifting the culture around college drinking. With student input and administrative support, our team keeps an eye out for potentially dangerous situations happening outside during party nights.  The student staff alters the trajectory of a potentially intoxicated student’s night, preventing a relatively small problem from becoming a dangerous situation.  Also, if you're feeling unsafe walking back to your dorm on a weekend night, our team will gladly walk you home.
