The college years can be a time of change, growth and understanding of the self and others. This is also frequently a time when students begin to explore and learn about sexuality. But sexuality encompasses more than just sexual activity. It involves who we are, how we see ourselves, how we feel about ourselves, and what we want from our relationships.

Health is an important component of human sexuality. This is true regardless of whether you are sexually active right now, have been in the past, or plan to be in the future. One way to ensure sexual health is to learn as much as you can about related topics and issues.

These pages provide information about sexual health. Use the information here to help guide your personal decisions about the choices, options and opportunities that may come your way while at Cornell and in the future.
