|Obligatory breakfast pic! - everything was SO good.|
Our hosts provided many useful updates in reference to UT student-athletes and how we can help those students break the "Athletics bubble."
Other useful updates from Kat:
- Monday, August 22: Dean of Students Student Organization fair in the North End Zone- there will be 50-70 student organizations for student-athletes, but the fair will be open to all students on campus.
- More to come: Advising Night will be held in the fall so students can talk to an advisor from their college.
Next up: AlcoholEdu updates from Shannon Hanby, Health Promotions Coordinator with University Health Services
AlcoholEdu is an online educational program all incoming students must complete (freshmen and transfer students under 21- if a transfer student did it at another school, they will have to do it again). Through interactive and personalized course content, the program teaches college students risk reduction in the areas of alcohol and drugs. There is also a companion module called Haven that addresses sexual assault and healthy relationship promotion.
