First-Year Alcohol Education
Dartmouth requires all incoming first-year students to complete online educational programs related to health and wellness prior to matriculation. This year, students are required to complete three programs, the Dartmouth Short Survey (DSS), AlcoholEdu, and SAPU. In addition, several events will be held during orientation on these subjects and other campus health issues.
Several weeks before the first day of class, First-year students will receive an e-mail containing detailed instructions on how to access the programs, including a Dartmouth-specific code(s). Questions, comments and/or concerns about these programs can be directed to Brian Bowden.
High-risk alcohol use and sexual violence are issues that face educational institutions and communities nationwide. Research indicates that parents can play an important role in prevention. If parents would like more information on how to engage their student about these critical topics, please visit the parent resource page.
