The e-CHUG is an online survey for Rider University students, which helps students gain insight into their relationship with alcohol. The e-CHUG is a brief, anonymous assessment tool that takes about 10 minutes to complete.
When you begin the e-CHUG, you are asked to enter some demographic information and information on your personal alcohol use. Once completed, you submit the form. The information you entered is processed and your responses are compared to national and local college norms. You then will receive about 5 pages of personalized feedback. You are encouraged to print this for your review.
The e-CHUG's individualized feedback provides students with useful information on such items as:
- Quantity and frequency of drinking, caloric intake
- Peak Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)
- Norm comparisons
- Income spent on alcohol
- Tolerance levels
- Consequences of alcohol use
- Genetic risk score
- Explanations and advice
- Referral information
If you find after taking the e-CHUG that you would like to discuss your results with a counselor, please call Rider University Counseling Services at 896-5157 (Lawrenceville) or 921-7100 ext. 8275 ( Princeton ) to request an appointment.
Your participation in the e-CHUG is voluntary. You may withdraw from participating at any time. The Rider University e-CHUG is serviced through a secure website at San Diego State University.
