Alcohol, Tobacco, & Other Drugs
Are you looking for ways to enjoy your free time without the burden of drugs and alcohol? Consider the following ideas and resources to "party" substance-free.
- Serve "Mocktails" at your next party. "Mocktails" taste great and combine non-alcoholic mixers, sodas, and juices together to create look-alike drinks without alcohol. People who serve "Mocktails" at their parties can offer drinks that look just like alcoholic drinks and respect their non-drinking friends.
- Choose activities based on your hobbies. It's a great way to meet people who think like you do! The Matador Involvement Center has opportunities for volunteers who would like to assist the greater campus community.
- The San Fernando Valley and nearby communities are home to thousands of activities, including nature trails, cultural events, movie theaters, and amusement parks. Explore your world!
