Freshers Fayre Fact
At this years Freshers’ fayre new students will be urged to wear a pair of “beer goggles” to demonstrate a few of the symptons of a few too many buy one get one free drinks.
The glasses give the effect of being drunk to show just how hard the simplest of tasks can be under the influence, from writing your name to picking up small objects.
The stand is part of the city’s Community Safety Partnership in an attempt to raise awareness of excessive drinking habits among adults in Coventry. The focus of the initiative and the beer goggles isn’t to try and discourage students from drinking but to try and avoid the dangers of excess.
