Lynn Gordon “Gordie” Bailey, Jr.
The Gordie Center for Substance Abuse Prevention honors the
memory of Lynn Gordon “Gordie” Bailey, Jr., who died of an alcohol
overdose at the University of Colorado after a fraternity initiation/
hazing ceremony. Gordie’s mother and step-father, Leslie and
Michael Lanahan, created the Gordie Foundation in his memory
and merged with the University of Virginia’s prevention efforts in
2010. The Gordie Center is committed to ensuring that Gordie’s
story continues to impact students by challenging attitudes about
the true risks of hazing and alcohol abuse.
Thank you!
Greetings from the Gordie Center!
This July, Deirdre Feeney joined the Gordie Center staff as the national
Gordie’s Call campaign coordinator. In this role, she creates and markets
prevention materials and programs, including National GORDIEday, to
raise awareness of the hazards of alcohol abuse and hazing. Deirdre is a
graduate of East Carolina University and earned her Master of Science in
Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
This summer we also welcomed graduate assistant Sarah Keller.
Sarah is pursuing a Master of Education degree in Higher Education
Administration. She advises the University of Virginia ADAPT peer
education program and assists with the APPLE
conferences and Gordie’s Call campaign. A graduate
of Trinity College, Sarah was an assistant rowing
coach at Bucknell University from 2011–12.
We are continually grateful for the many individuals
and organizations who support the Gordie Center
and share our vision of ending hazing and hazardous
drinking. The ongoing commitment of Michael and
Leslie Lanahan to the issue of substance abuse
and hazing prevention is a true inspiration. We
are especially appreciative of the many student
organizations who work every day to educate their
peers about the signs of alcohol overdose and the
need to intervene at the first sign of trouble.
Debra Reed, Deirdre Feeney, Holly Deering, Susie Bruce and Sarah Keller
Student organizations at the following colleges organized fundraisers to
benefit the Gordie Center since November 2011:
Fleming College, Delta Phi Nu
Sewanee: The University of the South, Eta Epsilon Chapter of Kappa Delta
Union College, Beta Psi Chapter of Delta Delta Delta
University of Colorado at Boulder, Pi Chapter of Alpha Delta Chi
University of Denver, Colorado Zeta Chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon

On behalf of the staff of the Gordie Center, please accept my warmest
thanks for your support.

GordiesCall.org
The new Gordie’s Call website went live this spring as part of the
national Gordie’s Call campaign to prevent alcohol abuse and hazing.
In addition to receiving free resource information on alcohol overdose,
hazing and medical amnesty on the website, organizations may
purchase materials at http://www.gordiescall.org/materials.
GORDIEcheck/BAC Cards
The response to the redesigned GORDIEcheck/BAC Card has been
extremely positive with many campuses purchasing cards to hand out
to the entire freshman class. To date, nearly 35,000 cards have been
distributed by 32 organizations and several concerned parents. Recently,
the card design was tweaked to increase readability and include
information on how to estimate the number of drinks in a standard
plastic cup.

Gordie’s Call
GORDIEposters
“I think it is so admirable
what your foundation is
doing, and I am grateful for
the many lives that were
probably turned around
due to your organization’s
hard work.”
This spring, the Gordie Center conducted a national survey to determine
which new educational materials to develop and we are excited to
release our brand new line of GORDIEposters. These 11” x 17” posters
are designed to complement and extend the information found on
the GORDIEcheck/BAC cards and are a great addition to any school’s
Gordie’s Call campaign.

Planning for National Hazing
Prevention Week (NHPW)
—Student reaction to seeing
HAZE as part of National
GORDIEday
Choose a Committee:
You will produce a
better program if you select
a planning committee
from across the campus
including various offices
and incorporating any student
group that might
need education. Some
suggestions are: Greek
Life, Athletics, Student Activities,
Counseling, Risk
Management, etc. It is
important to have both
students and profession
als as well as volunteer
s
(advisors, etc) serve on
the planning committee.
What Outcomes Do
You Want? Think
carefully about what the
goal is for your week. Is
it
to bring greater awarenes
s to the issue of hazing?
Let campus and communi
ty members know that
Greek organizations are
opposed to hazing?
Share resources available?
Develop a Game Plan:
Think about how to
achieve your outcomes
and what type of education
is most needed and for
which audiences. Do
parents need informatio
n, local police, faculty?
How can you incorpora
te these groups into your
programming for the week?
How many events,
sessions or campaigns
will you be able to produce
in one week? What is your
budget? Who can help
with funding?
Think About Publicity
: Getting good media
coverage can ensure that
your events have the
largest possible impact.
Write press releases for
4
big events and/or the entire
week and consider
paid advertising in the campus
paper to help
generate interest. Use social
media to get the word
out.
Host a week-long competiti
on between
organizations, with points
awarded for participation
each day:
Event Ideas
Below are examples of
successful events that have
been hosted at colleges
all around the country.
Pick a few events that most
interest you or come

Chi Beta Epsilon members at Trinity University
show their support for National GORDIEday.
“We started supporting the
Gordie [Center] last year,
and we hope to continue
to spread the word
about alcohol poisoning
awareness and hazing.”
Successful 2012 GORDIEday
The Fifth Annual National GORDIEday was held in conjunction
with National Hazing Prevention Week on September 27th, 2012.
Gordie Center staff enhanced the National GORDIEday Planning Guide
to provide revised needs assessment tools, additional programming
ideas and detailed planning tips. The guide was featured on
HazingPrevention.org and may be downloaded at www.gordiescall.org/

National GORDIEday
Students at Franklin & Marshall College rallied together to celebrate National GORDIEday!
The student-run organization F&M .08 works to promote responsible drinking through
alcohol education and also hosts alcohol-free events on campus.
Nationwide Enthusiasm
We are thrilled to hear from so many campuses about
their alcohol abuse and hazing prevention efforts during National
GORDIEday. In addition to hosting screenings of HAZE, popular
GORDIEday programs include bystander intervention and anti-hazing
pledges, panel discussions and social media campaigns. Making
programs visible through outreach tables and student-designed banners
or bulletin boards attracted a broad range of students and created
discussion. Creating friendly competition between student organizations
and offering incentives for participation and creativity increased
participation and impact.
“GORDIEday is a success!
F&M celebrates with green
everywhere! Over 1,000
bandanas [were] given out.”

HAZE: The Movie
Screenings Increase Awareness
Gordie’s story, as shown through the film HAZE, continues to raise
important questions about the role of new member initiation traditions,
alcohol abuse within student organizations and how peers can identify
and respond to alcohol emergencies. Since its release by the Gordie
Foundation in 2008, 423 high schools, colleges and organizations
have purchased the feature-length or abridged version of HAZE to
incorporate into their educational efforts.
HAZE was shown as part of the 24th annual Virginia Film Festival. The
sold out screening was followed by a panel discussion with Leslie and
Michael Lanahan, HAZE director Pete Schuermann, University of Virginia
(U.Va.) Dean of Students Allen Groves, Tolly Merrick, a teacher from the
Charlottesville, VA Peabody School and U.Va. students Brendan Martin
and Andrea Kaplan. Gordie Center director Susie Bruce moderated the
question and answer period.
“It was a really great movie.
Made me think a lot about
my & my friends’ behavior.
Definitely glad I came.”
—Student reaction to seeing
HAZE
Both films are available for purchase through the
Gordie Center and may be previewed through
www.gordiescall.org.

“The APPLE conference
inspired me to become
more involved and be a
leader—my voice is more
effective than I thought.”
—Student-athlete
“It is truly an honor
to attend the APPLE
conference. It is the
best conference for both
student-athletes and
administrators. This
conference not only
improves campuses and
athletic departments, but
it changes lives.”
—Athletics administrator

Step UP!
Bystander Intervention Makes a Difference
Too often, students lack the skills to identify when a friend has a problem.
In some cases, they are afraid to intervene until it is too late. To remedy
this situation, The University of Arizona, in collaboration with the NCAA,
the BACCHUS Network and the Gordie Center, created the Step UP!
bystander intervention training. This evidence-informed program has
won national acclaim and media coverage. The Gordie Center has been
actively involved in promoting the model and over the past few months
provided facilitation trainings to over 60 faculty, staff and students at
Virginia Commonwealth University and Radford University.
This summer, the University of Arizona hosted the inaugural Step UP!
Bystander Intervention Program Facilitator Training and Conference. This
intensive training was attended by representatives from the 64 campuses
and two community coalitions listed below. Thirty of these institutions
received NCAA grants to allow one representative from athletics
administration and one from student affairs to attend the training at no
cost. The Gordie Center director serves on the Step UP! Advisory Board
and helped plan and facilitate the conference.

If you drink, stay in the Pleasure Zone. A person’s peak “buzz” is reached at BACs between .02 and .06. Negative outcomes increase at BACs of .05 and higher.
Calculations use normative data, but individuals metabolize alcohol at different rates. Charts provide general guidance but do not guarantee a specific BAC.

Tips for a lower BAC
Many factors impact
how quickly alcohol
is absorbed into the
bloodstream including
those that can vary from
day to day (illness, lack of
sleep, food in stomach,
medication, etc.).

Reactions
Eat before and while drinking - Alcohol is absorbed into the
bloodstream more slowly when there is food (especially protein) in the
stomach.
Safer
Avoid mixing alcohol with other drugs - Some prescription and overthe-counter drugs (e.g., antihistamines) can increase alcohol’s effects.
Caffeine and other stimulants can trick you into feeling less impaired
which could lead to dangerous choices.
