Students just have to put a single drop of their beverage on a specific area of the coaster. If it turns blue, then the drink has been spiked with a date rape drug, KRQE reported.

The office has sent coasters to fraternities and sororities on campus, ABC News reported. Some students have picked them up on their own.
