For this program I advertise a mocktail party “with a twist” not revealing what the surprise will be. As the students arrive each are given a mocktail in a plastic cup, some cups will have a marking on the bottom and those will be given out randomly. The students will socialize for a while enjoying their drinks, music, and refreshments. After everyone arrives and has relaxed for a while I turn down the music and announce that the mark on the bottom of the cup represents a roofie, and anyone who had one of those cups was drugged that night. Each student will be handed a packet of information on date rate and date rape drugs.
The purpose of the program is to show students how easy it would be to be drugged at party and to give them valuable information on how to protect themselves.
