Students Offered Wellness and Safety Training as Tools to Cope with Pandemic


by Buffy Lockette

To empower students to make well-informed decisions regarding their personal safety and well-being, JSU is providing critical online education that promotes self-care, stress management and resilience.  

“Throughout the pandemic, universities across the US have seen an increase in high-risk behaviors and mental health concerns among college students,” said Josh Robinson, associate dean of students. “At JSU, our goal is to be proactive by educating students about safe and healthy practices before issues arise.” 

Partnering with EVERFI, the university is incorporating alcohol awareness and mental wellness training into the first-year experience course, STU 101, as well as the training of student organizations. While it is required of first-year students and student organization members, training is open to all students.  

To get started, students should login through a link they have been emailed to their student account. For more information, contact Josh Robinson in the Dean of Students Office at
