Students protect themselves from computer viruses by downloading or purchasing virus protection. Many people protect themselves from the flu, chicken pox, measles and more by receiving vaccines. But students don’t always take the measures to protect themselves from unplanned pregnancies and STIs.
Due to some of the changes in the health care system, some students may be eligible for free birth control and students are welcome to help themselves to free condoms available on the first floor of the Norco Building. Of course, abstinence is the only 100 percent guarantee against unplanned pregnancy, but for sexually active Broncos and Bronquettes, some protection can be had by using birth control or condoms.
