About Us

Peer Educators at Conference

The Student Wellness Education and Empowerment Team (s.w.e.e.t.) is a fun and positive group that promotes wellness on campus; we believe that “a healthy life is a s.w.e.e.t. life.” We are students helping students! 

We provide information on important issues college students care about (alcohol, mental health, sexual health, stress management, bystander intervention) and connect students with helpful resources. We also challenge negative perceptions and validate positive social norms regarding drinking behavior at SHU and are actively involved with several marketing campaigns aimed at helping shape the best possible culture on campus. We represent the majority of SHU students who make healthy choices and look out for their friends. Finally, we promote a fun, healthy and safe campus environment and college lifestyle for everyone here at SHU.

s.w.e.e.t. Peer Educators are selected through an application‌ and interview process during the fall semester. Members of s.w.e.e.t. complete a comprehensive training program in January and meet weekly to plan programs and target high risk times of the academic year. S.w.e.e.t. is an affiliate of the Bacchus Initiatives of NASPA, the largest active student organization in higher education today.
