National GORDIEday is held annually as part of National Hazing Prevention Week each September as a way to raise awareness about alcohol overdose and encourage students to intervene when a friend is in distress.
If you plan to participate in National GORDIEday, please register to receive a GORDIEsticker for your laptop and a pair of green GORDIEsunglasses! We will send a survey to participating schools after GORDIEday to learn more about your GORDIEday events, and one lucky school who completes the survey will receive a GORDIEstore 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 curiousity among your campus community and generate discussion about Gordie.
