National Gordie Day

National Gordie Day

National Gordie Day is held annually on the Thursday of National Hazing Prevention Week (the last week of September). Our goal is to raise awareness about alcohol overdose and encourage students to intervene when a friend is in distress. In 2023, National Gordie Day will be on September 28.

If you plan to participate in National Gordie Day, please register with the Gordie Center!  We will send a survey to participating schools after Gordie Day to learn more about your events, and one lucky school who completes the survey will receive a Gordie Center store prize pack!

Gordie Day Teaser Campaign

Introducing a brand new program to your community can often be a challenge. Students are constantly inundated with advertisements and messages, so it can be hard to stand out among all the competition. This teaser campaign is designed to pique interest in learning more about Gordie and the Gordie Day campaign. Use these campaign flyers to spark curiosity among your campus community and generate discussion about Gordie.
