Valdosta-- South Georgia students get a first hand experience on the dangers of drugs and alcohol.

Valdosta State University held a Drug and Alcohol Awareness fair today. Students wore "beer goggles" that make it seem like they were intoxicated and attempted to drive an obstacle course.

 Dozens of organizations were also on hand to show how drugs and alcohol can destroy a person's life. "We'd be silly to put our head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist, that's why we try to address and be proactive with these kinds of awareness fairs," said Mark Williams of the Alcohol Education Department.

VSU hosts the fair ever fall during National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.
