Letter from the Chancellor

Like universities nationwide, KU is not immune to the problem of excessive alcohol consumption by students. Excessive alcohol consumption has killed college students, and it can kill you.

Students also can call the Health Education Resource Office at 785-864-9570 to take advantage of the assistance that is available (read more...).
