Happy 21st Birthday Safe Celebration Program
In an effort to celebrate student's 21st birthdays safely, PEERS organization sends Happy 21st Birthday cards (PDF) with information about safe driving and drinking if they choose to drink. In line with our University value, "Cura-Personalis" – 'Care of the Whole Person', we are committed to caring for others. Whether you choose to drink or not, PEERS organization will empower you to make well informed decisions about alcohol and help you better respond to the alcohol-related decisions of your peers.

Please watch this video of a Rockhurst student who shared his birthday celebration, not with students at a bar, but by making cupcakes and raising over $2,100 for a local food pantry.
