We recognize that the culture at Newberry College will have a big impact on your growth. We take every part of the Newberry College experience very seriously, and we have implemented a comprehensive educational program to help you make the safest, healthiest decisions possible.
Going off to college for the first time is never an easy thing to do. In the next four years, you will grow and change in large part based on personal interactions and the environment in which you are living.
As part of maintaining a safe and healthy community that enhances your ability to learn and make well-informed decisions, Newberry College requires each first-year freshman to complete AlcoholEdu®, an online, interactive course designed to educate you about alcohol and its effects— both physical and mental. The AlcoholEdu® course will educate, not lecture. Whether you drink or not, AlcoholEdu® provides tools to deal with the realities of alcohol use and alcohol-related behaviors that may occur around you.
Like campus drinking, sexual assault is a critical issue that affects an entire college campus. To help students understand this issue, we have provided another section at the end of AlcoholEdu®, called HAVEN. HAVEN primary focus is to education students about relationships and decision making, including alcohol’s effect on relationship and the ability to give consent as well as important definition and debunking of myths associated with sexual assault.
Part 1 of the course takes about 2.5 hours to complete. We recommend that you take it in multiple sittings. This section ends with an exam and survey. You must earn a grade of 80% or higher to pass the course. The course will be available starting July 21, 2011. The deadline for finishing this section of the course is August 26, 2011.
After you have been on campus for a few weeks, you will receive an email asking you to complete Part 2 of the course. This section will take about 15 minutes. You must complete this section by October 21, 2011.
All responses are confidential; Newberry College staff will never see individual students’ answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers – no matter what they are – will not put you at risk in any way.
To take AlcoholEdu®, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities. If you do not have ready access to a computer, you may try using a computer at a local library, copy center or community center.
Welcome to Newberry College and we look forward to seeing you on campus this fall! If you have any further questions, please contact Mrs. Kay Banks, Dean of Students, at 803-321-5664 or email@example.com.
