Toilet Talk

Toilet Talk is a publication focused on various topics related to college students, created by our own Peer Educators.  Toilet Talk is distributed to residential and academic buildings on a weekly basis.

Multitasking isn’t always bad. That’s why we help you learn interesting information about your health while you’re answering nature’s call. Every week we post a new issue of Toilet Talk in every bathroom on campus so you can leave the bathroom a little wiser in addition to being a little lighter.

Can’t be torn away from your smartphone? Follow our Twitter @LSC_Oswego.  Just don’t drop your phone in the toilet ok? That thing touches your face and toilet water is not good for your complexion (we learned that from reading Toilet Talk).

We need your help!

We need your help to distribute Toilet Talk!  Hours are dependent upon the amount of issues hung. To participate, come to the Lifestyles Center on Fridays at 10:30am to pick up stacks. While we do not release Toilet Talk until 10:30am on Friday, lines typically start forming earlier.  Building choice is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. For better selection, arrive early.

Please take note: Students at SUNY Oswego expect to see new issues of Toilet Talk in their bathrooms each week. The Lifestyles Center will not tolerate students who sign up to hang Toilet Talk and do not complete the task. If a student is found to have not hung the issues of Toilet Talk that they have signed out in buildings they agreed to, they will be permanently banned from Toilet Talk distribution.

How do you submit an event to be posted on Toilet Talk?

Email Shelly at with details related to the event, and when you request it to be posted.

What if you don't respond to my email right away?

The Lifestyles Center may not reply to Toilet Talk related emails from students outside of the scheduled office hours. This includes: after office hours, on vacations/breaks, sick days, holidays, or class cancellations. Please give us at least 2 business days before following up.

Please understand that there are weeks where Toilet Talk is gone completely in the first half hour, and other weeks there are many left over.  Come early in the semester to ensure that you have your selection of community service completed before the due date.
