Letter from the Dean of Students
faculty and staff of The University of Tampa share your exceptional
vision and ambition for all aspects of your life, in and out of the
classroom. Your personal and professional development, and that of your
peers, is the cornerstone of a partnership that will last during your
years here and beyond. It is an exciting journey on which we embark
Although alcohol and other drug use does not present
a problem for most students, alcohol abuse and experimentation is an
issue that affects the entire community. Since most students favor
activism and prevention efforts over negativism and disciplinary action,
our school is always looking for innovative ways to enhance our
comprehensive alcohol strategy and to promote the responsible use of
alcohol both on- and off- campus.
Your physical and emotional
health, now and throughout your life, will serve as a critical
foundation for the greatness that your intellect and creativity afford
you. And, as always, your commitment to yourself comes with a shared
commitment to the health and welfare of others. Just as you have
throughout your life, you will have a special opportunity to impact the
lives of your peers in positive and productive ways, and we are
committed to helping you do so in any way that we can.
The University of Tampa is proud to offer MyStudentBody as part of our orientation program. Every incoming first-year and transfer student will be required to take the MyStudentBody on-line course.
MyStudentBody features online courses about alcohol and drugs that are
used in schools nationwide as a requirement for first year students.
Providing online education through a flexible, interactive design, the
MyStudentBody courses teach students about alcohol, drugs and other
addictive substances. The goal of the course is to increase students’
knowledge, decrease harmful behaviors and provide information to help
students make good decisions. Students must complete all three modules
with a passing score. Login instructions will be posted once they become available.
MyStudentBody, a comprehensive college health suite, is a
research-based initiative that is supported by the National Institutes
of Health (NIH). MyStudentBody also covers the following health areas:
Alcohol, Drugs (Illicit and Prescription), Stress, Sexual Health and
Relationships, Tobacco and Nutrition. I hope you will take advantage of
this confidential, online resource. It is available to you 24/7. Please
feel free to contact me with any questions or comments about the
