A former Ohio State University student is coming to campus tonight to talk about the college drinking problem, putting a different spin on the topic at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center (PAC).

However Jake Byczkowski’s message is not to discourage drinking.

He just wants to answer the question, “Why do many college students continue to drink even after experiencing alcohol related harm?”

Byczkowski wants to make students more aware of alcohol related harm, what it really means to help students make better choices and discuss bystander intervention.

He was a Delta Tau Delta fraternity brother, a party DJ and a representative for Red Bull. More than once, Byczkowski said he found himself and his friends in bad situations because of alcohol consumption. 

After acknowledging his own drinking problem, Byczkowski started speaking at universities nationwide to address the college drinking problem, hoping to help students learn to make good decisions in a safe environment without fear of judgment.

Admission will be free and open to the public. Proof of attendance will be provided.
