Former reality star gets real

The First Year Experience (FYE) Success Series program at Georgia Southern is bringing a former reality star to campus.

After publicly battling her alcohol problems on MTV’s ‘The Real World,” Ruthie Alcaide has come out on top. Since the show aired, she has overcome her issues and will talk about what happens when alcohol and drugs take over your life. She will also discuss her experience with alcohol poisoning and her road to recovery. Alcaide will conclude her talk with a question and answer session. Her presentation will be held in the Russell Union Ballroom on Tuesday, Aug. 29, at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Alcaide’s visit is sponsored by the First Year Experience and Health Services through an alcohol education grant from the Georgia Office of Highway Safety.

The presentations are free and orientation classes are strongly encouraged to attend.
