Advice for the week:

If someone is a minor, that person should not be drinking at all. No one should be drinking to the point where they cannot be aware of the surroundings. By doing this, people put themselves and others in harmful situations without knowing it. If people are of age, they shouldn’t drink beyond the point where they can control their actions. The point is to have people laugh with each other, not at each other. Those who are feeling down should not drink at all. It will only make sad people feel depressed, so mixing alcohol with loneliness or sadness is a terrible idea. Instead, find someone to talk to. The UAFPD is always available.

There were many items stolen this week. Stuff should not be left in open areas or unlocked vehicles or lockers. If it is left in the open, most likely it will be taken. Also, do not take people’s things. It is okay to not have an iPad or a jersey, not all people can afford these items, but individuals look worse if they take someone else’s.
