New Online Alcohol Education Program: Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo

Student Life is pleased to announce it has contracted with San Diego State University to bring Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo to Santa Fe College.

Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo is an interactive web survey that allows college and university students to enter information about their drinking patterns and receive feedback about their use of alcohol. The assessment takes about 6-7 minutes to complete, is self-guided and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor or administrator.

When you access the Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo, you are prompted to enter your demographic information, drinking habits and family history, and to complete the World Health Organization’s AUDIT.

After all information has been entered, you submit the form. The information you entered is then validated and processed. The Alcohol e-CheckUpToGo calculates a number of variables and compares your responses to national and local college norms. Your personalized feedback is then displayed in an easy-to-read format.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to try out the system (for age, enter 99 so as to not interfere with the student data) and to share this link with students.
