The objective of this research will be to identify the knowledge and awareness between HIV testing and risky sexual behavior on the campus of a Historically Black College/University in the state of South Carolina during the fall semester of 2015. Approximately 50 students who participate in the weekly HIV testing will be surveyed in the Claflin University Health Center, on their knowledge and awareness of HIV, risky sexual behavior, and condom use using the HIV Knowledge Survey. In addition, another 50 random students from the campus will be surveyed to compare data.
