Trivia and Pizza Night
College of St. Scholastica
Please briefly describe your Communities Talk activity.
We hosted a game night with trivia about positive party behavior. Students provided information about fun activities to take part in that do not involve drinking. They also shared a presentation about the costs of drinking, including facts about how many students do not drink. Lastly, students participated in a trivia game where they were quizzed on the content of the presentation.
