About MyStudentBody at IU

MyStudentBody (MSB) offers a comprehensive approach to reducing the risk of drug and alcohol abuse and sexual violence among college students. MSB is available 24/7, all semester long, for information on drugs, alcohol, sexual violence, and other health and wellness issues that can affect academic success. MSB's Essentials is an online prevention education course intended for incoming students. It covers the three most significant behavioral risks new college students face: alcohol, illicit and prescription drugs, and sexual violence. Structured around a motivational self-assessment in each area, Essentials incorporates audio, video, and interactive tools and lessons to teach students key concepts and skills.
