Sexual Health

Sexual health can lead to a safer life. As you know, practicing safe sex, or practicing abstinence, cannot only protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, but it can also prevent unintended pregnancies. We aspire to encourage safer sexual practices, practice healthy relationships, and promote safer practices that will not hinder your academic capabilities as a student. Both male and female condoms are available. If you are looking for information or have questions about sexual health, please feel free to stop by our Allied Health and Emergency Services department (located on the second floor, southwest hallway, 2200 wing).
