K-State utilizes Voices for Change, an online, science-based program that provides the latest information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind. Voices for Change provides students with a comprehensive foundation in four areas: sex in college, partying smart, sexual violence, and healthy relationships. This course prepares students before they begin their life in college. Whether you choose to drink or not, this program will empower you to make well informed decisions about your own use of alcohol and help you better cope with the drinking behavior of your friends and peers.
This training must be completed once by all students at K-State. All new students enrolled in at least 1 credit hour, on or off campus, must take the training. The specific training module assigned is based on your age.
