The choice to be sexually active is a personal one. Knowing your risk for STDs and pregnancy, using protection, and understanding the meaning of consent are related to your overall wellness and success in college. The Center for Student Well-Being provides sexual health resources for all students for free. Stop by our office in SVC 2127 for free condoms, internal condoms, dental dams, lubricant, and educational materials.
Relationships in college are vital to maintaining personal wellness. During college, you will experience relationships with your roommates, professors, classmates, parents, yourself and of course with romantic partners. Keep your relationships healthy and long-lasting by devoting time and effort to them. Check out the links on the right for more information on maintaining healthy relationships.
Sexually Transmitted Infections
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD/STIs) are common in college students. One in two sexually active people will get a STD by the age of 25, and most won’t know it. Many STDs are asymptomatic, meaning they don’t show any symptoms. Getting annual STD testing is important to maintaining your general wellness in college.
