College Health and Safety

There are all kinds of tests in college--beyond those you take for a grade. Examples include

  • Social and sexual pressures.
  • The temptation of readily available alcohol, drugs, and unhealthy food.
  • The challenge of getting enough sleep.
  • Stress from trying to balance classes, friends, homework, jobs, athletics, and leadership positions.

Educate yourself on:

 

Alcohol and Public Health

Fact Sheets – Alcohol Use and Health

College Drinking: Changing the Culture (NIH)

Motor Vehicle Safety

Quit Smoking

Youth Tobacco Prevention



Quick Tips:

  • Work with campus leaders to increase the availability of healthy activities and safe places on campus to meet with friends.
  • If you’re concerned about your or someone else's use of alcohol or other drugs, ask for help from your parents, resident advisor, faculty advisor, or a health care provider or counselor at your school or local health clinic.
  • Avoid secondhand smoke. It is just as harmful as if you were smoking yourself.
  • Don’t drive after drinking or using drugs.
  • Don’t ride in a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs.
  • Don’t drink alcohol if there is any chance you could be pregnant.

 


Flu Season

 

Flu seasons are unpredictable in a number of ways. Although epidemics of flu happen every year, the timing, severity, and length of the season varies from one year to another.
