AlcoholEDU® for College

AlcoholEdu and Haven® for First Year Students

AlcoholEduAs part of our comprehensive alcohol prevention program, Wake Forest University requires that each member of the first-year class complete AlcoholEdu and Haven®.

As a member of the incoming class, we require you complete AlcoholEdu & Haven for College, online, science-based courses used on over 500 campuses nationwide, before you arrive at Wake Forest.  AlcoholEdu provides detailed information about alcohol and its effects on the body and mind. Whether you drink or not, the goals of the course are to help you make well-informed decisions about alcohol and address the drinking behavior of your peers. Haven will provide information to help you identify, react, and respond to sexual assault and relationship violence. Haven will also help you learn about healthy relationships, the importance of consent and being a good communicator, and the many ways you can help create the safe, positive campus you want to be a part of.

Members of the incoming class will complete the majority of each online, science-based course before arriving on campus for orientation. Approximately 45 days after passing the course exam, students are required to complete the brief final chapter and follow-up survey.

Students are encouraged to speak with their families about AlcoholEdu & Haven® and how they will handle situations involving alcohol while at Wake Forest.

Please note all survey responses are strictly confidential. The school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students answers. You can feel confident that providing truthful answers–no matter what they are–will not put you at any risk for repercussions.

We also encourage you to bookmark this website as a source of alcohol use and wellbeing information throughout your career at Wake Forest.

We recognize that the materials covered by the Haven course may be triggering. To request an accommodation or for any other questions or concerns regarding Haven, please do not hesitate to contact Tanya Jachimiak, Title IX Coordinator at or 336-758-7258.

For questions or concerns about AlcoholEdu, please do not hesitate to contact Peter Rives, Assistant Director of Wellbeing – Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention at or 336-758-4371.

We look forward to seeing you campus! Go Deacs!
