From the Students:
“I was able to enter into recovery in the spring of 2016 thanks to the resources offered by my school’s collegiate recovery program. One month after I entered recovery, my CRP director told me I should attend ARHE’s National Collegiate Recovery Conference in Atlanta, GA. Since then, I haven’t known recovery without the incredible support, guidance, and network of this organization. ARHE has provided me with recovery resources, personal and professional growth opportunities, friendships across the country, and a deep appreciation for the work that individuals and collectives across the country are doing to support students in recovery.”

-Morgan Vickers, 2017 ARHE Student Ambassador an 2017-2018 ARHE Intern

“Being the Graduate Student Representative for ARHE has given me such gratitude and appreciation for collegiate recovery and really highlighted the impact it can have on a community. Being on the board also gave me invaluable experience in non-profit work and the impact an organization with a strong mission can have. I am honored to have been a part of the board and truly thankful for an opportunity to grow in my recovery.”
-Jack Sykstus, ARHE Graduate Student Representative 2016-2018

“Being a part of Collegiate Recovery and ARHE has given me a real sense of purpose as an undergraduate and graduate student. I received a scholarship at the University of Connecticut in my first two months of sobriety and I couldn’t believe that someone wanted to support me for living a life in recovery. My hope is that other students will be awarded scholarships for working hard to maintain their recovery while pursuing a degree in higher education.”

-Ashley Wheeler, 2017 ARHE Student Ambassador and 2018 ARHE Graduate Student Representative
