Most people assume that drinking alcohol and partying are a normal way of life for most college students, but for some it’s not their cup of tea.
VSU’s Natural High Club was founded as a great alternative for students who don’t care for the college night life.
The club will host a game night tonight at 8 p.m. in Odum Library room 1480.
Refreshments will be served and games will include Uno, Life and other team games.
The club was founded over 10 years ago, and was created to show students that they can have fun in a safe and healthy environment without alcohol and other drugs.
The club hosts a variety of events from game and movie nights to karaoke. All events are free of charge and take place in the Student Union or library.
Autumn Sullivan, the vice president of Natural High, enjoys the fun atmosphere and thinks that it’s a rewarding organization to be apart of.
“I enjoy being apart of a group that’s dedicated to this positive cause and with all the events we have, the experience is fun as well as rewarding,” she said. “Being in Natural High has taught me that not only is it possible to come together with friends without the use of alcohol or controlled substances, but it’s actually a really good time.”
Others share Sullivan’s enthusiasm about promoting a positive and healthy alternative to drinking and partying.
Camille Jackson, a freshman undecided major, likes the fact that the club offers alternative entertainment.
“I think it’s a great idea to have an organization for students who don’t drink or party,” she said. “Many students who don’t party can feel left out especially in a college atmosphere, so it’s great that those students can still have a good time without being under the influence.”
Membership is open to all VSU students, and membership is extended by attending just one event. The only requirement is that the student be in good academic standing.
