This Web site was created for MMC3260: Communications on the Internet, a web design, technology, and communications studies class at the University of Florida. This final project was to be a well-designed site using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and XHTML to present a research topic of the student's choice.

As the creator of this Web site, I chose to research Alcohol and its effects as a way to inform myself about the substance and also present facts and statistics to the public. My name is Melissa Garcia and I am a Journalism and English sophomore at the University of Florida. As a college student, the pressure to drink socially is great; however, I have chosen early in my life not to drink alcohol, both as a point of principle and pure personal preference. Yet, I understand that moderate and light social alcohol consumption has its benefits, as are presented on this site. Therefore, this project reflects the choices of the general public, and I encourage those who do choose to drink to be safe and responsible and know the facts.

Please feel free to E-mail me with comments, questions or concerns about my Web site's content or design.

The instructor supervising the class and project was Matt Blake, a doctoral candidate at the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communications.
