Resources for College Orientation Programs



With college orientation just around the corner, we know that a lot of you are busy programming events to enhance the health and safety of your students. We also understand what a challenge this can be. It’s not easy to encourage students who are caught up in the excitement of a new academic year to focus on serious issues like binge drinking, sexual assault, racism, homophobia, campus violence, and their responsibilities as bystanders.

That’s why MEF offers a range of films designed to help students engage these kinds of urgent issues.

Our titles take on subjects that have direct relevance to the lives of young people — from media violence, gender norms, sexual identities, and white privilege, to alcohol abuse, hookup culture, and the meaning of sexual consent.

Featured titles include Killing Us Softly 4Tough Guise 2Spin the BottleSpitting GameFlirting with Danger, and Guyland.

All of these films share the same basic goal: to empower students to think critically about the world around them.
