We currently offer the following programs:
Give a Hoot: Owls Speak Up Give a Hoot provides students with the tools to recognize risky or challenging situations and concerning issues and how best to intervene, including trying to talk to a friend before something risky might happen, doing something in the moment, or supporting someone after something difficult has happened. The training covers the following health and wellness topics: sexual health, sexual assault, body image, alcohol and drug use, anxiety, and suicide prevention. All trainings are held in the Wellness Resource Center classroom. Give A Hoot qualifies for STARS credit through student organizations and for SOAR credit for new students.
Alcohol 101: Drinking alcohol is a common behavior among college students, though it can be a risky one! This program is designed to discuss the emphasis on personal choice and assessing personal risk. Through a series of games, students will learn about taking care of themselves and their fellow Owls if alcohol is in the mix.
Owl About Stress: This program empowers students to reframe how they think about stress by debunking stress myths, talking about resilience, and making a self-care plan for those really stressful times in the semester (talking to you midterms…). This is your go-to stress program on campus!
Escalation: Escalation is a powerful, emotionally-engaging 90-minute film-based workshop, created by the One Love Foundation, that educates students about relationship violence and empowers students to work towards change. This research-based program will help you identify behaviors that may be warning signs of relationship violence and discuss ways you can get involved to prevent it from happening.
Intimacy Project: This program will give participants the opportunity to explore what intimacy means for them and others. Through individual and group activities students will learn about several different types of intimacy, how they can articulate their needs, and how different relationships/connections can help meet those needs.
