National GORDIEday

National Gordie Day

National GORDIEday is held annually on the Thursday of National Hazing Prevention Week each September.  Our goal is to raise awareness about alcohol overdose and encourage students to intervene when a friend is in distress. In 2022, National GORDIEday will be on September 22.

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

GORDIEday 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 GORDIEday campaign. Use these campaign flyers to spark curiosity among your campus community and generate discussion about Gordie.

GORDIEpledge to Check

Did you know that signing a pledge increases the likelihood of behavior change? Run a GORDIEpledge to Check drive on National GORDIEday!


It's easy to say you know the signs of alcohol overdose, but are you willing to tell the world that you will intervene, check for the signs, and be the one to make the call for help when you see even just one PUBS sign?  If so, take the GORDIEpledge to Check. 

Be a voice for someone who may not have one.  

You can also sign our online GORDIEpledge!
