The sexual health problems faced on college campuses are largely know, but many students are still dissatisfied with the measures their schools are taking to address the issue, and the lack of resources, like STD testing.
Students at DePaul University, for example, recently started their own student health group to deal with the problem on their campus, which was recently ranked last in the Trojan Sexual Health Report Card for having the worst sexual health resources out of 139 schools.
The group works to raise awareness of the problems posed by STDs on the campus, and also encourages more testing.
The group's leader, Stephanie DeLacy, told her school's paper that without efforts like this the problem would just continue to get worse.
"We want to make sex and sexual health an ongoing discussion at DePaul," she told the news source. "We don't want it to just be a one-time thing or event, we want it to always be talked about and the importance of it to be stressed."
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that STD testing is one of the most important things individuals can do to help stop the spread of infections.
