Campus Health and Wellness in partnership with Options for Women will offer free STD testing on Thursday, Feb. 9 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Wellness Center. Students will have the opportunity to be tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and syphilis. Services are confidential, and no appointment is required. Testing will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that people ages 15-24 accounted for almost half of the 26 million new sexually transmitted infections that occurred in the United States during 2018. Many STDs don’t cause any symptoms that you would notice. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to get tested.
