Weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meeting to be held at University Park

August 23, 2010

Beginning on Friday Aug. 27, there will be a weekly meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous from 5:15 to 6 p.m. in room 105 of the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on the University Park campus. The meeting is open to anyone who has a desire to stop drinking.

"As our community moves forward to address the challenges of dangerous drinking, we acknowledge that many students' use of alcohol may align less with the one-time alcohol abuse incident, and more with the reality that they may be suffering from an addictive abuse of alcohol," said Damon Sims, vice president for student affairs at Penn State.

"This fall, the Division of Student Affairs at Penn State will provide space for an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. We hope that this campus-based opportunity will better support students and others who wish to get sober. The Alcoholics Anonymous group process has repeatedly demonstrated that individuals who cannot get sober on their own are able to do so through the sharing of common struggles and with the encouragement and support of others who believe in them."

Free parking will be provided for those who wish to attend the meetings, which will be held every Friday. Attendees should park in the Nittany Parking Deck adjacent to the Nittany Lion Inn and bring their parking stub to the meeting.
