Although alcohol use does not present a problem for most
students, alcohol abuse and experimentation is an issue that affects the entire
community. Since most students favor activism and prevention efforts over
negativism and disciplinary action, our school is always looking for innovative
ways to enhance our comprehensive alcohol strategy and to promote the
responsible use of alcohol both on- and off-campus.
Shawnee State University is proud to offer MyStudentBody as part of our orientation program.
MyStudentBody features online courses about alcohol and drugs that are used in
schools nationwide as a requirement for first-year students. Providing
online education through a flexible interactive design, the MyStudentBody
courses teach students about alcohol, drugs, and other addictive substances.
The goal of the course is to increase students' knowledge, decrease harmful
behaviors, and provide information to help students make good decisions.
Shawnee State University expects you to
complete the MyStudentBody online alcohol, drug, sexual health, and stress
sections of the Essentials course before your first day of classes. Here's
what you need to know to get started:
