As part of our comprehensive prevention program for new students, all incoming Springfield College students are required to complete AlcoholEdu and Haven before arriving on campus.
This online education will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your years at Springfield College and to assist you in dealing with the behavior of your peers. AlcoholEdu and Haven introduce you to community expectation and provide important information about topics including interpersonal relationships, alcohol, other drugs, and more.
Information about completing AlcoholEdu and Haven will be sent to your Springfield College email in late July.
All students must complete both AlcoholEdu and Haven before arriving on campus. Check your email for your personal due date. If you are arriving early for athletics, Pre-Camp, or Cultural Connections, you are required to complete AlcoholEdu and Haven before your program begins. If you have questions about accessing these programs, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at (413) 748-3922.
