Welcome to the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO at Amherst College


Please choose:

Dear new student,

Welcome to our campus community. The path from Orientation to Graduation in a few short years will be filled with the excitement of new relationships, new opportunities and new responsibilities.

Your first few months in college will present you with important choices that can impact your success. To increase your self-awareness to make these choices, all entering students are expected to complete the Alcohol eCHECKUP TO GO online program before arriving on campus.

eCHECKUP TO GO is a quick, personalized and confidential assessment that will provide you with information on alcohol and harm reduction strategies and feedback on your own alcohol risk factors. The information you provide is anonymous and only available to you. Your identifying information is only used to verify completion of the program.

You will also learn about campus resources that can help you, or help you to help a friend. Students who wish to speak to someone confidentially are encouraged to consult with staff at the Counseling Center 413 542-2354. Please be aware that there are a few questions about sexual assault that some students may find triggering. For additional information on sexual assault, refer to the college’s sexual respect website –


Taking care of ourselves and each other are actions we know strengthen our community. Thank you for completing this online program and for your commitment to becoming a knowledgeable, compassionate and constructive member of this campus community.

My sincere wishes for your success at Amherst.

Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Health Education
