The Cove

About The Cove

The Cove is a safe space to be in community with other students that are committed to their recovery from alcohol and/or other drugs, are the loved one of someone with an addiction, are someone who wants to support those in recovery, are interested in recovery or just want to meet other students who are substance-free and looking for community. Slugs for Health and Growth is also for you if you are seeking:

  • Involvement in fun, sober events (on and off-campus)
  • Connections to resources for wellness and support
  • Recovery support and accountability
  • Opportunities to be of service
  • Opportunities to debunk stereotypes and myths about addiction and recovery

The Cove has weekly workshops, recovery meetings and drop in hours (when campus is having in-person classes) for students seeking support from their peers.
