UO ranks in top 10 of another sexual health survey



The University of Oregon is once again ranked in the top 10 most sexually healthy universities in the country.

STDtestexpress, an online clinic focused on providing easy, affordable STD tests is releasing its top 25 healthiest colleges and universities. UO came in at number 8, four spots lower than on Trojan’s 2016 Sexual Health Report Card.

According to the new list, UO scores well thanks to efforts by the University Health Center “supplying students with as much information about sexual health as possible.” STDtestexpress lauds the Health Center’s testing services as some of the most comprehensive in the country.

In addition to the comprehensive screening for STDs ranging from chlamydia to trichomoniasis and HIV, the Health Center also offers contraception, HPV vaccines, pregnancy testing and counseling.

UO sits one spot ahead of Oregon State University which ranked No. 2 on Trojan’s 2016 list.

UO has continued to climb up lists in terms of sexual health. In Trojan’s 2013 study it ranked No. 48, the university then jumped to No. 17 in 2014 before cracking the top 10 in 2016.

Trojan’s report card will be released in October.
