Empowering Student Health and Wellbeing
Promoting student health and wellbeing is essential for academic success, physical and mental health, social connections, and long-term well-being. By investing in students' well-being, we empower them to reach their full potential and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
Binge Drinking & Substance Abuse in College
There are many circumstances in which a student may turn to alcohol and/or drugs to cope with depression, anxiety, and/or stress. College students who binge drink alcohol at "least three times per week are roughly six times more likely to perform poorly" in school as a result of drinking than students who drink but never binge. Drinking in this way can cause serious health and safety risks as well as damage one's liver and other organs over time. Regular participation in physical activity or meditation as well as eating a well-balanced diet are just a few healthier alternatives for dealing with the stress and anxieties college students face.
