Welcome to eCHECKUP TO GO!
eCHECKUP TO GO is a valuable tool for all students to use to learn about alcohol.
eCHECKUP TO GO is an online, CONFIDENTIAL self-assessment survey which takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. eCHECKUP TO GO is designed to serve as a ‘check-up’: it provides you with accurate information about alcohol and it provides you with personalized feedback about your alcohol use.
All responses are confidential and your name is not attached to the eCHECKUP TO GO assessment in any way. NO Purdue University Northwest personnel will be able to view your feedback but you.
eCHECKUP TO GO is designed to promote harm reduction and to motivate students to make small changes to reduce negative consequences related to alcohol. Honest and accurate responses to each question will provide you with helpful feedback regarding your individual patterns of alcohol use. You will gain information that pertains to how alcohol may be affecting your academic success, personal relationships, career and life goals and your overall health and well-being. Upon completing the survey, you can read and/or print out information regarding your use of alcohol.
We strongly encourage you to also print out a certificate of completion for verification and for your records.
eCHECKUP TO GO is an interactive assessment tool that allows students to anonymously enter information about their drinking patterns and receive feedback on their alcohol use. The web-based survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, is entirely self-guided, and requires no face-to-face time with an administrator or counselor.
The information that you enter about drinking habits and family history is used to calculate your individual use in comparison to national and local college norms. Furthermore, the program includes personalized feedback for you on topics such as:
- Calorie Intake
- Tolerance Levels
- Income Spent on Alcohol
- Blood Alcohol Concentration
- Genetic Risk Score
- Referral Information
When you take the eCHECKUP TO GO, you will be prompted to provide some demographic information along with information pertaining to your use of alcohol. Upon entering your information, you will submit the form. The information is then processed and will display your personalized feedback.
If, after completing the eCHECKUP TO GO, you would like to speak to a counselor about your feedback or are interested in more information and resources, the Counseling Center has services available for you. The office is located in the in the Gyte Building Room 005 (Hammond Campus) and TECH 101 Building (Westville Campus). You may also call 219 989 2366.
