The University of Cincinnati wants your college experience to be safe and successful. College is a time when many students choose to use alcohol when celebrating and spending time with their friends. However, many of us know someone who has gone too far and gotten themselves into trouble or hurt themselves or somebody else because of their alcohol use. Be Wise is a collaboration of campus entities coming together for the greater good of our campus community. Whether you're the "party thrower" or a "party goer" we have something for you! If you have questions about hosting a responsible party or need to know how to help a friend who has consumed too much, we can help!
The Gotcha Covered condom distribution program is designed to increase condom distribution on and around campus for UC students. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), condom distribution programs are effective at increasing condom use, increasing condom carrying, promoting delayed sexual involvement, and reducing incidence of STIs. Currently, students can get free condoms from the Student Wellness Center, but only during business hours. This program allows UC students to become a certified Gotcha Covered volunteer by attending a 1-hour sexual health education workshop. Once certified, the student will be provided with a supply of condoms to have available for fellow students and residents. By displaying your Gotcha Covered sticker on your door, you're allowing students to stop by to pick up condoms, lubricant, and/or information on sexual health.
