B.A.C.ZONE Cards

B.A.C.ZONE cards are credit-card sized, laminated cards that help you plan ahead for drinking occasions. If you want to drink, but stay safe at the same time, the cards can be used to help you stay below a certain blood alcohol concentration (BAC)--We recommend staying below a .05.

The cards are customized, because BAC is greatly influenced by sex and weight. You can request a card that’s personalized for your sex and your current weight.

Please contact mark.rowe-barth@uni.edu to request a free card (we’ll also pay for the mailing costs!) Please note this resource is only available for UNI Students.
