Peer Health Education

Have you heard about RC HEAT?

Through our Health Education Awareness Team (HEAT) we offer a unique opportunity to RC students who are interested in challenging their friends and peers to think about, discuss, and consider changing habits and attitudes toward high-risk health behaviors. We conduct a variety of campus wide programs through the school year that are fun but also provide practical information.

Our Programs:

  • Casino Night: Who says alcohol education can't be fun!? Casino Night is a great way for students to chill out and distress while trying their hand at a variety of casino games like black jack. Students can enjoy mocktails while testing their knowledge on alcohol and alcohol consumption through a variety of informational games.

  • 50 Shades of Maroon: One of our most requested hall programs to date. 50 Shades is our sex education and reproductive health interactive hall program that is fun and informational.

  • Happy Hour with HEAT: Another one of our alcohol education hall programs that teaches students responsible drinking habits.

  • Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The Roanoke College community is proud to show its support for sexual assault and misconduct awareness. Walk a Mile is just one of our many events that get people out and talking about what it means to give consent. 

  • and many more!!
