Since most students favor activism and prevention efforts over negativism and disciplinary action, our school is always looking for innovative ways to enhance our comprehensive alcohol strategy and to promote the responsible use of alcohol both on- and off-campus. Although alcohol use does not present a problem for most students, alcohol abuse and experimentation is an issue that affects the entire community. 

SUNY Oswego is proud to offer MyStudentBody, which features online courses about alcohol and drugs that are used in schools nationwide as a requirement for first-year students. Providing online education through a flexible interactive design, the MyStudentBody courses teach students about alcohol, drugs and other addictive substances. The goal of the course is to increase students' knowledge, decrease harmful behaviors and provide information to help students make good decisions.
