REQUIRED FOR FIRST YEAR STUDENTS
MyStudentBody Registration Instructions
Austin College is excited to offer new students and other members of the Austin College community the opportunity to experience MyStudentBody. Our hope is that students will use this resource throughout their time at Austin College, and not just because of a requirement or class assignment.
While first-year students are requested as part of their admissions process to visit the site, any member of the Austin College student body who wants to learn more about alcohol and drugs in an up-to-date, non-judging manner can visit.
Your responses will be kept anonymous, and will not be associated with your name in any way. We respect your privacy. Administrators or parents who would like to have a sample visit to MyStudentBody are encouraged to call 903.813.2306.
There are numerous studies that show that the first few months of college are a very important time in the overall academic career of a student. In our experience at Austin College, we have also observed that many of the alcohol and drug-related disciplinary incidents occurring each semester involve first-year students. Additionally, in recent academic years, colleges have had alcohol and drug-related student fatalities, some of which might have been prevented if the victims or bystanders had been more knowledgeable about alcohol and drugs. We offer this program in the hopes that it will reduce alcohol and drug-related disciplinary incidents and other problems for first-year students here at Austin College.
For more information about first-year students and alcohol and drug use, please visit the following sites:

- College Drinking Prevention
