People make a lot of decisions in college….what major to pursue, what student organizations to join, when is best to study, what is best to eat, where to live...the list goes on. College can also be a time for deciding whether or not to be sexually active, what relationships look like, what types of protection to use, what affirmative consent looks like, etc. We are here to help you navigate this territory! Check out some of these great resources:
This spring, Fort Lewis College will receive training and technical support from the Division of STD Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) to facilitate peer-led workshops focus on changing campus culture around sex, sexuality and healthy relationships.
