Welcome to Winona State University!

 

Directions for Incoming Freshman, Fall 2014:

Dear New WSU Warrior,

The faculty and staff of Winona State University share a commitment to your success in and out of the classroom. Your personal and professional development is the cornerstone of a partnership that will last during your years here and beyond.
As you know, alcohol is a significant issue in the lives of students in both high school and college.  Whether you choose to abstain from alcohol entirely or not, it is an influence in our lives and in the lives of our family and friends.

WSU has created an interactive online survey, WSU Student Alcohol and other drug Facts & Education (WSU S.A.F.E.) Survey. This is not an over-simplified lecture about the use of alcohol. Rather, it is a thoughtful and educational program for adults committed to considering their life choices.

WSU S.A.F.E – is an online, non-opinionated, confidential alcohol and drug educational program. Whether you drink or not, WSU S.A.F.E will help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and better manage drinking behavior that may occur around you. The University cares for your health and safety. We promote responsible decision making by our students, so all incoming freshmen are required to complete WSU S.A.F.E.    

Winona State University is deeply committed to the health, welfare, and ultimate success and happiness of all members of our community. We hope that you find the course helpful and instructive on this important journey. 

WSU S.A.F.E. consists of two parts:

Part One

  •  Takes about 1 hour to complete.
  • You may begin this anytime once you receive your invitation email sent to your personal email account* early July 2014.
