Find your 🦉 Owl Family!

College life provides unique opportunities to meet new people and explore a variety of relationships. Regardless of the type of relationship, in healthy relationships you can be yourself, have fun together, respect each other, value each other’s differences, and communicate openly. Relationships with these characteristics can be very fulfilling and contribute to a positive experience while in college.

Unfortunately, not all relationships are healthy relationships. Signs of unhealthy relationships can include demeaning comments, blaming, jealousy or possessiveness, use of force, coercion or pressure, threats, intimidation, and violence. If you are concerned about a relationship, whether your own or someone else’s, Florida Atlantic University, has several resources to help students in these situations.
