Dear Boilermaker,

What do first-year or transfer students do for a FREE Den Pop at Discount Den? They participate in AlcoholEdu for College, an online alcohol education course!

What is AlcoholEdu?

AlcoholEdu for College is an online alcohol education course that helps us promote an overall healthy and safe campus environment at Purdue. The course is divided into two parts.

  • Part One takes about two hours and should be completed by the first day of classes, August 25th. The course includes information, videos, and surveys that offer you feedback on your alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All surveys are strictly confidential; we cannot see your answers. There is an exam at the end. Students are expected to receive a grade of 70 or higher on it.
  • Part Two occurs about six weeks after classes begin and takes about fifteen minutes to complete.

How do I take AlcoholEdu for College?

  • Visit www.purdue.edu/alcoholedu to log into the course. You MUST use your Purdue career account username and password to sign into the course.
  • You will need a computer with Internet access and audio capability. If you do not have access to a computer, you can use any publicly available computer with internet access, including computers available on campus.

What is a Den Pop?

Den Pops are fountain drinks at a local store called Discount Den. Bobby Haddix, Purdue Student Body President, and a team from Purdue Student Government recommended that students receive Den Pops for their participation. He said, "AlcoholEdu has become as much a part of the Purdue experience as a Den Pop. Everybody does AlcoholEdu, and everybody buys Den Pops. Why not put them together?"

How do I get my Den Pop and what else is available?

After you complete Part One, you will receive a link to print off a certificate for a free Den Pop. After you complete Part Two, you will be placed in a drawing for one of 100 $30 Amazon gift cards.

A person may also enter this drawing by sending a postcard with their name and contact information (including local mailing address and phone number, and email address) to the Student Wellness Office at 601 Stadium Mall Drive, West Lafayette IN, 47907-2052 with the following statement, "I did not complete Part Two but wish to be entered in the Amazon Gift Card drawing."
