Alcohol Edu (Required Alcohol Education Course)

All new freshmen are required to complete the Alcohol Edu online program. This course will help incoming freshman to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect college years and beyond. Instructions are sent to students with their Orientation information. The course has two parts, Part 1 is to be completed before attending June Orientation. A 70% or better must be achieved on the exam at the end of Part 1. Access to Part 2 will be granted in September with a due date in the fall semester. Part 1 takes about 1 hour to complete.  Part 2 takes about 20 minutes to complete. Both parts of the course must be completed in order to avoid a hold being placed on the student account which will prevent future class registration until the course is completed satisfactorily.

Peer Educators

The mission of the BSU Peer Educators is to empower students to make informed decisions with regard to alcohol, drugs and related health and social issues. The Peer Educators are selected through an interview process and receive training to educate other BSU students. They provide engaging inclusive and informative events, workshops, and awareness campaigns around issues faced by BSU students, serving to connect students to university and community resources. In addition to special event programming, Peer Educators provide programs on request to the campus community. Programs have been conducted for BSU student clubs and organizations, athletic teams, commuters and resident students.
