Alcohol Awareness & Screening

College of St. Joseph is offering students anonymous alcohol self-assessments in the Dining Hall on April 28 from 11:45-12:45.  This event is intended to raise awareness and  educate students about unhealthy drinking habits Students will have an opportunity to take a brief and anonymous screening that will provide them with important insight into their drinking habits and behaviors and offer treatment and referral information, if necessary.

Whether a student drinks alcohol to fit in socially, to relax or to self-medicate, it is important they know that as drinking increases, so does the likelihood of negative consequences. Not only are students more likely to engage in risky behavior while under the influence of alcohol, excessive drinking also exacerbates mood disorders like depression. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, nearly a third of people with major depression also have an alcohol problem and this can lead to problems during college and long after graduation.

While the screenings are not diagnostic, in a matter of a few minutes students will get a very good idea of whether they may have a problem that requires further attention. With all the serious consequences stemming from alcohol, this is very valuable knowledge to have.

Don’t risk your future. CSJ Counseling Services staff is here to listen and help.

Free Paper Editing Service

Every semester, a plethora of students are gifted enough to realize that if they complete their papers early enough, they will have enough time for a Peer Tutor to edit them for common mistakes that result in reduced grading. We all know that having our work edited is sheer brilliance, and at CSJ … it’s free!

The Learning Center is always willing to edit papers, and more importantly, teach new skills along the way. However, sending your papers to the Learning Center the night before they are due does not provide sufficient time for effective editing.

To guarantee effective editing, Peer Tutors require at least 1 weeks’ notice in order to provide quality support services. If any CSJ students want to have a paper screened for editing, please Google Doc & share them with the Learning Center Director (Susan Boyce), who will in turn share them with a qualified Peer Tutor that will launch the editing process. All papers must be passed through the Learning Center Director in order to be assigned. We look forward to serving our students effectively!
