Shawnee State University understands that the college experience extends far beyond academics, with the
social development skills practiced during these years providing the foundation
for future success. Students are faced with many challenges during their college
years including exposure to alcohol and drugs. Our dedicated team of educators
and college health professionals is always looking for innovative ways to
enhance our comprehensive alcohol and drug strategy.
State University is pleased to offer MyStudentBody®, a comprehensive program

MyStudentBody features online courses about alcohol and
drugs that are used in schools nationwide as a requirement for first-year

substances. The goal of the course is to increase students’ knowledge, decrease
harmful behaviors, and provide information to help students make good decisions. Our school requires

to complete the MyStudentBody online courses about alcohol, drugs, stress, and
sexual health before the student’s first day of classes.
