Adam Dorenfest 12-04-07 SHADE Going into the SHADE program I only had a small core of beliefs on what we were going to learn. But now I realize that there is more than meets the eye when dealing with such mature concept as alcohol consumption. Being a student at a major university, it is universally understood that no matter what school that one is going to attend, there is going to be not only the presence of alcohol but the urge to drink it even though you are not of legal age.

I now posses the knowledge to make better judgment calls and the ability to handle alcohol with more respect if I ever decide to drink again....
