The mission of the Red Watch Band is to provide Northeastern University community members with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent student toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion, and respect.

The Red Watch Band program is a student-led initiative aimed at encouraging students to identify dangerous levels of intoxication, and to call for help if their friends have had too much to drink. Red Watch Band events occur one to two times per semester, in partnership with NU EMS and RWB peer educators.

The next Red Watch Band event is Monday October 9th (Columbus Day) from 6:00pm-7:30pm in 420 Behrakis! Register here.
