ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students at Albany State University got a chance to play the game of Life Wednesday. 

Folks from Phoebe's Network of Trust School Health Program partnered with ASU's 'Students Taking on Prevention' program to present the 'Get a Life' Maze and Wellness fair. 

During the maze, students were put in real life situations.

They learned about what it's like dealing with pregnancy, HIV and AIDS and drug and alcohol addictions.

Then they could speak with professions in those topic areas. 

Many professors made it a requirement for students to attend. 

"We're had some really good by in from the professors. They are really interested. They want to make sure their students come to the event and are able to experience it," said Phoebe Network of Trust Program Coordinator Kate Handwerk.

The purpose of the event is  to teach students about consequences of real life decisions. 

Organizers want students to be aware of the free help they can get if they are put in those situations. 

At the event, students could also get free health screenings. 

If you missed Wednesday's event. 

A similar maze will be held again in the Fall.
