Alcohol & Other Drug Prevention (AOD)
As part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, Ramapo College requires that each member of the first-year class complete AlcoholEdu College. Members of the class of 2015 will complete the majority of this online, science-based course before arriving on campus for the fall semester. Approximately 45 days after passing the post-test, students are required to complete the brief final chapter and final exam. Students are encouraged to speak with their families about AlcoholEdu College and how they will handle situations involving alcohol while at Ramapo.
We also encourage you to bookmark the RCNJ AOD website as a source of alcohol use and wellness information throughout your first year at Ramapo. Two sections to be completed to fulfill the requirement.
Part I of the course takes roughly 1 hour to complete. This section includes:
- Chapters 1 thru 3
- Survey 2 (Students must earn a grade of 85 or higher to pass part I
Part II occurs 45 days after you complete the Exam and Survey 2. Students will receive an email asking them to complete
- Chapter 4
- Final Exam
*Please note that the course includes three surveys that measure students’ alcohol-related attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are strictly confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers – no matter what they are – will not put you at any risk for repercussions.
With data from the National Institute of Justice showing that one in five college women (and one in 16 men) will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation, the widespread impact of sexual violence on students presents an urgent and pressing challenge for our nation’s campuses. Haven – Understanding Sexual Assault (TM) addresses the critical issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.
Haven uses a population-level approach to educate all students on the issues associated with sexual assault and relationship violence, taking into account their unique perspectives and experiences, providing:
- Key definitions and statistics
- Reflective and personalized content
- Bystander skill and confidence-building strategies
- Campus-specific policies, procedures and resources
- Rich data summaries to inform future programming
