Studying Abroad

Top things to consider when drinking alcohol abroad

  • Consider how laws regarding alcohol and other drug use vary by country and are often times more severe than in the US.
  • Alcohol content in drinks might be higher in some countries depending on how it was made. For example, one beer made in Belgium might have a stronger effect on you than the same brand of beer made in the US.
  • Keep in mind that students are representing Stanford University while abroad and the purpose of this experience is to provide students with a rich learning environment.
