WVU Fraternity Learns About the Dangers of Alcohol Consumption

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia University is known for being a party school, and sometimes fraternities on the campus can get a bad name for drinking excessively.

On Monday, the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity hosted a special event to learn about the dangers of drinking.

The brothers asked members of the WVU Healthcare Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center team to come to the fraternity house and give a presentation about the dangers of alcohol intoxication and the injuries associated with it.

The presentation included facts, pictures, and stories all aimed at giving the brothers a sense of what drinking excessively can do.

"Underage drinking and excessive drinking is a big problem on WVU's campus and I have noticed it in a couple of the guys in our fraternity. I wanted to open up their eyes a little bit more. A lot of them do exactly what she stated, they don't really care and think its no big deal," said Ethan Bloomfield, president of Alpha Gamma Rho.

Members of the trauma team said they will go and talk about the dangers of alcohol to any school or organization that asks them.
