NPR, LDA, UVA, BAC, HooFest and More

What's with all the acronyms? I don't know, but I heard on the radio this morning a story on NPR that was interesting and wanted to pass it along to you, my beer-loving friends. It's a story about Social Normalization and on-campus drinking at University of Virginia. It's an interesting program they have going on, and I'd love to know what some of you think about this. The story is about nine minutes long to listen to, but is more complete than the text. Check it out.

Things that interest me? The fact that UVA tries to teach students what alcohol poisoning looks like and what to do. The fact that DUIs are down. Education, not just policing kids underground. The fact that the university is trying.
