Penn State Berks to present 'College Under the Influence' on Aug. 28

READING, Pa. — Sean Reed, inspirational speaker and author of "College Under the Influence," will discuss this controversial topic during two presentations at Penn State Berks on Monday, Aug. 28, one at 12:15 p.m. and another at 7 p.m., in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. Both presentations are free and open to the public.

"College Under the Influence" is based on a true story and research regarding college students drinking alcohol, and the ability to overcome negative consequences by creating self-awareness. Reed discusses the “elephant in the room” regarding social issues, the consequences of alcohol consumption, and solutions to a common challenge.

In addition, Reed will provide complementary copies of "College Under the Influence" during a book-signing event immediately following the evening session.
