It is stressed that the information provided is useful to all individuals, whether they are currently sexually active or abstinent.

Kale, Yeah! Fantastic Food and You (Nutrition)

Kale, Yeah! is an interactive game that helps students identify the relationship nutrition has on general health and wellness. Participants learn the basic components of a healthy eating pattern, dietary recommendations, as well as tips specific to college students such as preparing meals on a budget, preparing meals in a residence hall, and quick snacks. The game also addresses current dieting trends.

Know the Standard (Alcohol Risk-Reduction)

Know the Standard is about alcohol risk-reduction. We know that drinking is a big responsibility, and if our students are choosing to drink, they should be equipped with information to do so in a safer manner.
