Drinking is no secret among college students, and it shouldn’t be hidden. If you are going to drink, you need to know the important facts about alcohol.

Titan Productions hosts events every semester to help bring awareness to different issues surrounding college students. This semester they hosted the comedy show A Shot of Reality.

The show is hosted by two comedians, Caleb Gearge and Bryce Wissel. It is based on research and statistics on alcohol and college students.
