Health and Wellness

College is often a time of adventure, trying new things, and finding out who we are and what you want out of life.

College can be a time of growth, challenge, and change. A college environment may present new life experiences, like taking care of when and what you eat or how much sleep you get. There may be new sexual pressures or the need to take care of your sexual health.

Similarly, the reality of alcohol and college may present unfamiliar situations and choices. In all the excitement, change, and at times, difficulties of being a college student, keeping a balanced, well-rounded lifestyle may seem its own challenge.

Wellness encompasses physical, emotional, social, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. When one area is not well, all other areas may be affected or feel more difficult or problematic.

Similarly, a balance with some focus and attention to each of the areas often makes life more manageable and enjoyable.

Alcohol & Drugs

Wright State University realizes alcohol and alcohol-related issues are of concern to students. To serve as a resource and active educator to help students deal with alcohol-related concerns, the Office of Student Support’s Health and Wellness Initiatives offers extensive programming and information resources in a non-judgmental, student-focused environment.


The Office of Student Support Services offers a number of services to address alcohol-related concerns through its Health and Wellness Initiatives. Students are always welcome to use resources ranging from referrals to programming.

  • The Office of Student Support Services is a referral source for services on campus and throughout the Dayton Community.
  • National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW), recognize annually in October, aims to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol as well as re-establish healthy norms as they relate to the college experience.
  • Alcohol-Free Programming uses non-traditional approaches to involve students. Activities ranging from mocktail events during NCAAW, Homecoming, Welcome Week, and May Daze to activities using FatalVision "beer goggles" that safely simulate various levels of alcohol impairment and subsequent effects on actions.
  • General Alcohol Prevention Programs reach students in residence halls, classes, and student organizations. Presenters use lectures, skits, games and video/CD-ROM to address topics including binge drinking, alcohol and other drugs, and predatory/date rape drugs.
  • The Office of Student Support Services provides up-to-date informational resources including brochures, videos and CD-ROMs for individual use or for student projects or programming.
