Marshall University SHEP provides an educational presentation on sexual health. This presentation covers sexually transmitted infections and preventative strategies to use when having sex, abstinence, and contraception options.
Along with the presentations, Marshall University SHEP offers free condoms to students. Condoms can be found in the SHEP office, located on the first floor of the Marshall University Recreation Center. Condoms can also be found at the Women’s Center (Prichard Hall), LGBTO Office (Student Center Basement), and in many of the lobby bathrooms of the Marshall University residence halls.
