While gambling can be fun if you’re of legal age, it’s not a risk-free activity. For some college students, gambling for fun can turn into a serious problem and have a negative impact on their lives.
CollegeGambling.org was developed by the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) as a tool to help current and prospective students, campus administrators, campus health professionals and parents address gambling and gambling-related harms on campus. This site provides resources to help you learn more about this issue and how to get help if you need it.
They’ve even created an fun interactive quiz. Click HERE to try it out.
CollegeGambling.org builds on the recommendations of the Task Force on College Gambling Policies, which can provide your school with a roadmap for reducing gambling among students and enabling those who are struggling with addiction to participate more fully in college life. View the Task Force’s “Call to Action” report.
