  • Talk to student when she/he is sober
  • Relay concerns and avoid judging
  • Describe to student specific behavior you have observed
  • Talk to student about potential and actual consequences of behavior
  • Talk to student in group format, if one or more persons express concern
  • Contact Health Resources and/or the Counseling Center for tips on how to intervene
