Texas Tech University


RISE offers all Texas Tech students the opportunity to complete eCHECKUP TO GO- a personalized, evidence-based, online prevention intervention developed by psychologists at San Diego State University. This program will give students a chance to participate in an anonymous assessment about their drinking habits, marijuana use or tobacco use. Feedback is completely confidential, though students can access resources through the online screening if they choose.

If you'd like to speak with someone in RISE after you take the assessment, or would like a professional staff member to discuss your results with you, call (806.742.2110) or email (RISE@ttu.edu) to set up a coaching session.
