Alcohol and Studying Abroad

Top things to consider when drinking alcohol abroad

  • Consider how laws regarding alcohol and other drug use vary by country and are often times more severe than in the US.

  • Alcohol concentrations might be stronger in some countries. For example, one beer made in Belgium might have a stronger effect on you than the same brand of beer made in the US.

  • Keep in mind that students are representing Chico State University while abroad and the purpose of this experience is to provide students with a rich learning environment.
