VALDOSTA – Valdosta State University’s offices of Alcohol and Other Drug Education and Health Promotion welcome nationally recognized speaker, Julia Garcia to present “The TRU College Life” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25 in Jennett Hall Room 1111.

"You will not want to miss an opportunity to hear Julia Garcia share her story of partying while in college and the consequences of the decisions she made,” said Alcohol and Drug Program Coordinator Mark Williams. “You will find this 25-year-old speaker engaging and creative and she will meet you where you are as she presents 'The TRU College Life.'”
