Alcohol/Drug Use Diary

Why fill out a diary about drinking and/or drug use?

The daily drinking/drug use diary is a tool that can help students learn more about themselves and provide a better idea about personal use of alcohol and/or other drugs.

If you were assigned by OSCCR

If you were assigned to complete the diary as a part of a requirement or alternative through the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, please be sure you complete the diary on a daily basis for the required amount of time (1 or 3 months).
