“TRUE BLUE CHOICES” is a social norms alcohol education campaign delivered by the Department of Athletics
at the University of Memphis in partnership with the School of Public Health, Student
Health Services, Student Affairs, and Orientation Services. Funding for this 3-year
project was received from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The
University of Memphis is one of 15 institutions, out of 53 proposals received, to
be awarded CHOICES grants from the NCAA.
The goal of “TRUE BLUE CHOICES” is to educate University of Memphis students about responsible drinking by changing
the way students view alcohol use. In general, college students think other students
consume more alcohol than they actually do. Athletes will promote the message that
de-emphasizes the role of alcohol on campus life and lower students’ expectations

during the academic year?
