Community Wellness Requirements

As a new student and throughout your Becoming Orange journey you will participate in community wellness activities that build connection, promote community well-being and help you learn more about health and wellness resources and programs. Some activities begin before you arrive, while others take place a few weeks into the semester. Community Wellness Requirements are centered on sexual and relationship violence prevention, alcohol and other drugs and diversity, equity and inclusion.


Three EVERFI Training Modules | Due: Aug. 1

All first-year and transfer students are required to complete EVERFI online training modules, centered on sexual and relationship violence prevention, alcohol and other drugs, and diversity, equity and inclusion. Modules may be completed through multiple sittings. Using the directions below, please complete each of the modules (AlcoholEdu, Sexual Assault Prevention, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) by the deadline.

  • Internet access and audio capabilities are required to complete modules.
  • Please use an updated web browser (e.g. Firefox, Google Chrome).

The modules include survey questions that assess relevant attitudes and behaviors. Your responses will be used to tailor the content of the educational modules that you complete.
