Matthew Duran, senior public affairs major, hosted a safe sex health fair April 23 in the Johnson Family Plaza.
Sexual health is very important to students on campus, and 15 out of 16 students questioned in an informal survey feel as though the health center could do more to educate students about sexually transmitted disease protection and prevention.

One group that hung out at a table outside was happy to talk about sexual health – in general. The students got quieter, however, when asked if they would share their STD status on the Internet.
