Transcript of J360 Semester Project

Oral sex isn't a venue for STDs
The "average student" would never have an STD
I will never get an STD There is a test for everything
Oral sex isn't a venue for STIs
The "average student" would never have an STI
I will never contract an STI "You have the average student [as a sexual partner], and you think, 'Oh, they're healthy and smart and they probably haven't had a lot of partners and they're not going to be infected.' Of course, it only takes one encounter." - Sex Educator for Health Center's Health and Welness Education Departnment Consequences of untreated STIs Hepatitis - liver disease
Syphilis - permanent organ damage, brain dysfunction
Gonorrhea/Chlamydia - Infertility/Sterility Scary statistics
One in five Americans has an STI
2/3 of all STI-infected people are 25-yrs-old or younger

One in four girls aged 15- to 19-yrs-old has an STI STI testing basics Get tested at least once a year
Recommended: with every new partner
Address STI testing and sexual history with every new partner "I'm a big believer in talking about self-esteem. Self-esteem means that you have self-confidence and are going to take care of yourself.

You don't want to take a risk." - Kathryn Brown On-campus sexual health resources Residential Programs and Services (RPS) - Resident Assistants, live-in officers
Health Center Health and Wellness Education - sex educators, Sexploration Week

One girl didn't know what condoms were for. That's obviously a rare situation, but it's very important to know residents are safe and have a good first experience, and part of that is good sexual health information." - RA Tessa Wilhelm, junior Room for programming improvement Wilhelm: RPS program focusing on STI testing/scary statistics
Brown: online informational session/quiz prior to first registration (inspired by current alcohol program)
