Outside class

There are a variety of classes that CU offers to support students as they reflect on their relationship with alcohol and other substance use. Find information about the classes that are offered, cost and how to sign up below.

*These classes are not therapy or substance abuse treatment.

This free, voluntary workshop provides students with a safe, non-judgmental space where they can explore their relationship with substance use and discuss ways to maximize their experience. This 50-minute workshop is available on a drop-in basis. Students of all levels of use or non-use are welcome.

If you are interested in attending this workshop, contact Health Promotion by calling 303-492-2937 or stop by in-person at Wardenburg Health Center, Room 346.

This one-on-one conversation lasts 30 to 50 minutes and helps students explore their relationships with substance use and its impact on their lives. This program helps motivate students toward positive change and to think differently about their use. Individualized resources are provided to students to explore if they are interested after the session.

Alcohol Impact Circles are designed for participants to learn through dialogue with each other by sharing personal stories and experiences. In this way, the knowledge is owned by the participants rather than the facilitator as they explore themes that include alcohol usage, risk reduction, second hand impact and decision making.

Participants will:

  • Engage in a dialogue focused on storytelling to build community.
  • Practice active listening to discover connections within the Circle.
  • Reflect on the impact of their alcohol use within their community.

Cost: $40
