Wellness Policies at USC
AlcoholEdu® for College is an online science-based alcohol abuse prevention program that provides a tailored educational experience focusing on the impact of alcohol on the mind and body. Every incoming undergraduate student is required to take AlcoholEdu® for College and pass the course’s final exam. In this way, every student coming into the USC community has an appropriate and accurate understanding of alcohol and alcohol abuse.
Approximately 45% of incoming USC freshmen have consumed alcohol in the 6 months prior to coming to college. This number may seem different that what you had expected. Whether or not you decide as a student to drink while you are at USC, AlcoholEdu® for College will assist you in making a well-informed decision as well as assist in coping with the potential drinking behavior of your peers.
OWHP collaborates with other departments focusing on issues that affect the safety of the campus community. A new issue we are exploring is safe bicycle use on campus.
The university is committed to providing a healthy, safe and comfortable environment for all students, staff, faculty and visitors.
