Aspire to Be Well for Undergraduate Students

Aspire to Be Well is a 90-minute peer-led health- and safety-focused dialogue. The dialogue covers key areas to maintaining a healthy and safe campus including overall wellness, alcohol and other drug misuse prevention, mental health and suicide prevention, and interpersonal violence prevention. Students will gain an understanding of campus resources and learn how to help others in need through risk-reduction strategies and bystander intervention.

New students will receive session and sign-up information in their @clemson.edu email account during the first week of classes. Online sign-up is required before attending a session.

*Please note that Aspire to Be Well contains information about interpersonal violence and suicide that may be emotionally triggering for some individuals.
