When all else fails, and your teen is trying to pick a college, how about checking its Sexual Health Report Card? Each year the Trojan company commissions an independent research firm to rank 139 colleges and universities on the quality of their sexual health resources and services available to students.
The categories used to evaluate the programs include:
Sexual health awareness programs
Condom & contraception availability
Other Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) testing
Student health center hours of operation
Drop-in vs. appointment-based service
Navigability and usability of Web-based sexual health information
Anonymous advice / newspaper columns
Lecture outreach programs
Student peer groups
Sexual assault programs
This year, a combination of high student rankings, comprehensive sexually transmitted disease- and HIV-testing services, as well as condom and contraception availability elevated Stanford from 41st place in 2007 to No. 1 in 2008! I do know that their peer health program is amazing and run by students, so go Stanford!
Just in case you care, last year the top two were the University of Minnesota and University of Wyoming, and this year #2 was Columbia and #3 was Cornell.
