Students can participate in Health Education’s rewards program called Perka. Students who visit the office and obtain either safer sex supplies or abstinence kits will be eligible for our S3 rewards program. Students who sit in the Relaxation Station for a minimum of 10 minutes will be eligible for the Relaxation Station rewards program.


The Health Education Office will be using Perka which is a free rewards app that rewards students for their visits while maintaining visitors’ privacy. For students without smartphones, there will an option to track visits through Perka via SMS (text) messaging. Perka check-ins for S3 (abstinence kits or safer sex supplies) and the Relaxation Station will be handled independently, allowing students to access two reward paths. Students will be rewarded for their 1st, 4th, 6th and 8th visits. When signing up for Perka, the Health Education Office encourages students to pick an alias (such as “Husky2016”) rather than using their real names. In addition, students are encouraged to read its privacy policy to understand how their information may be used. The office will not be collecting any personal information; we will only be counting visits.

By following us on Facebook* or Twitter, students will be able to know when the members of the Safer Sex Squad visit the Health Education Office or other venues on campus. When a character “visits” the office or another venue on campus, we will give additional rewards to S3 members.

Rewards will be given on visits 1, 4, 6 and 8 and starting with the 8th reward, students will be able to put their name into a monthly give-a-way from which they will be able to pick from several items.
