Hey Okanagan College! Let’s talk about drinking…
Join us on Thursday, March 28th from 10:30am-12:30pm for a dialogue on drinking culture on campus. Come share your thoughts on the following topics, and more: what does moderate drinking mean? What are positive aspects versus risks of drinking? What role does alcohol play in our relationships? How will it impact our careers or industry?
Refreshments (coffee, tea, and snacks) will be provided. Registration is requested. Location: Kelowna Campus Atrium.
