Valdosta - Some South Georgia students are learning the dangers alcohol can pose.

It's alcohol awareness week at Valdosta State University. Thursday, students took part in a simulated drunk driving course and a mock D.U.I. test at an alcohol awareness fair.

"Even though you might have just had one drink, it can go a long way and this proves that its really dangerous and not something to be played with," said Tanettra Redmond, Student.

More than two dozen campus and community agencies were on hand to give out information on alcohol related problems.

Earlier this week, students also took part in a "Beer Factor" simulated obstacle course and a "Mocktail" party where teams competed to see who could make the best non-alcoholic drink.
