  6. Q: Are current students involved in New Student Day?

    1. Yes. Beaver campus students are peer leaders who have been trained to be an important part of New Student Day. Initially, you'll meet them in the summer when you attend New Student Orientation (NSO). They'll also contact you via email throughout the summer. At New Student Day, you can continue the friendship you've already created with your peer leader.

  7. Q: Whom should I contact if I have questions about PSU Safe/PSU Aware?

    1. PSU SAFE is a confidential, online alcohol education program. The program uses science-based research to educate students about alcohol and its effects. Whether you drink or not, the program will help you make informed decisions about alcohol and the drinking behavior that may occur around you.

      The PSU SAFE program consists of two parts, both of which must be completed to satisfy this requirement. Part 1 is about 1.5 hours in length and can be taken in segments. About 30 days after the start of classes, you will receive an email with instructions for completing Part 2 of the course.

      PSU AWARE is a confidential, online sexual assault awareness learning module. The program educates students about sexual assault and sexual harassment. The program will help you develop practical skills to keep you and your friends safe.

      The module contains four scenarios, each one should take between 15 and 25 minutes to complete. There are two surveys in the program (one survey at the beginning and one survey at the end). Each survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. The entire program should take approximately two hours to complete.
