Contact: Health Educator ● afrey@towson.edu

Dear TU Student:

Welcome to Towson University! At Towson, we recognize that college can be more than academics; the people you live with, social interactions, and co-curricular activities also play a large role in shaping your experience. We look forward to helping you make meaningful connections as a member of the Towson community. Our goals include ensuring that students have a positive experience at Towson University and that you are aware of your rights and responsibilities as a member of our campus community.

As you may know, Towson University has partnered with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills such as alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention and financial literacy, in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Each year over ½ million students complete these courses.

As part of our comprehensive prevention program for new students, Towson University requires you to complete AlcoholEdu and Haven. These online courses will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your college years and beyond.

Your login directions and additional details are included in this communication.

You are required to complete both AlcoholEdu and Haven. Survey 1 must be completed by August 18, 2014 and Survey 2 by October 20, 2014.

Other Important Information:

  • You will need Internet access and audio capabilities.
  • To avoid technical issues, please use any major web browser released within the previous two years.
  • You may take the courses in multiple sittings.
  • The courses may include surveys to help personalize your experience and measure students' attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students' answers.
