HIV and AIDS educator Elaine Pasqua will present “Sex and Excess: Surviving the Party" in the Lowman Student Center Theater today.
The program is designed to help students understand the consequences of their decisions while also promoting sexual health and safe party behavior, according to Pasqua.
“This is important for students to become aware of because inconsequential decisions can change the course of their lives and can affect their success during and after college,” Pasqua said.
The presentation will include several interactive exercises that cover the effects of alcohol on body and behavior, DUIs, sex under the influence, sexual assault, unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and AIDS and many other topics caused by irresponsible behavior.
“I’m not telling you not to party,” Pasqua said. “I’m telling you how to do it safely.”
The seminar will take place in the LSC Theater at 9:30 a.m. Students must bring an active Bearkat OneCard for admission.
