Talk by Mike Green to Motivate Students to Live Responsibility

Bethlehem, Pa., March 18, 2010—Mike Green, president and founder of Collegiate Consultants, will present “One Night Can Have a Lifetime of Consequences,” on Monday, March 22 at 7 p.m. in Moravian College’s Johnston Hall.  Green’s presentation will address responsible living amid drug and alcohol abuse on college campuses.  This event is free and open to the public and can be a valuable experience for both high school and college students.

A recovering alcoholic and ex-college athlete, Green has spoken at more than 2,000 campuses over the past 18 years in an effort to make drug and alcohol education an integral part of every student's life. His presentations incorporate comedy and crowd participation to pull audiences into the subject matter. Green’s program on alcohol awareness doesn’t employ a prohibitionist approach, but rather, educates students about a responsible way to have fun.  He produced a series of video tapes which include many of the innovative, and now famous, “Think before you drink” techniques, as demonstrated during actual presentations.

Green is an alumnus of West Chester University, where he earned his Masters of Education in Health and Physical Education. In 1987, Green was chosen to give expert testimony before the House of Representatives Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control and was also named as one of the "Outstanding Young Men of America." Green is developing drug and alcohol programs for New Jersey high schools and has developed programs for the Philadelphia Flyers and other sports teams. He serves as a consultant to the student affairs and athletic departments of numerous universities, including Penn State, Boston College, Brown, and Princeton.

Green’s background and firsthand experiences allow him to connect with audiences and give him credibility to express the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.  According to Green, this program presents a unique opportunity for current and future college students to be spoken to, rather than preached at, by someone who recognizes and understands the college lifestyle.

Moravian College is a private, coeducational, selective liberal arts college located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Tracing its founding to 1742, it is recognized as America's sixth-oldest college. Visit the Web site at www.moravian.edu.
