The Cove

The Cove is where Slugs for Health and Growth students and guests can meet other members, learn more about recovery, hang out, and participate in fun and supportive activities with other sober students. Students that are questioning their relationship to alcohol and other drugs are welcome as well.

COVE will have drop-in hours this fall. Check back soon for the Fall Quarter schedule. Email Jorge Bru:

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 clean and sober 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.
