Our focus areas include alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, mental health, nutrition, men's health, sexual health, and sexual violence prevention.

Self-Care Tips


1st Annual Tin Can Donation

The BREATHE (Be Responsible and Educated About Tobacco, Hookah, and E-Cigarettes) Campaign is hosting their 1st annual altoid tin collection! Altoid tins can be used to safely put out tobacco and nicotine products, which prevents wildfires and pollution in our oceans that are caused by cigarette butts. The tins you donate will be offered to individuals who are using tobacco or nicotine products to help them safely dispose of their products off-campus. If you have an altoid tin or other tin boxes laying around, drop them off at HPW, Village at Centennial Square, Building A, Room 1. For more information, please contact
