IUPUI Hosts Naloxone Training as Part of Larger State Initiative

As part of a larger, statewide, movement to make Naloxone and training to use it more accessible, IUPUI hosted a free Narcan training in the Campus Center on Feb. 1.

Craze for Caffeine

Every college student knows the feeling of having one million things to do and never enough time to do all of them. Many turn to energy drinks, teas and coffees to give them an extra boost. However, many students likely do not know what they are consuming, or if it is even beneficial.
