Welcome to Winter Term 2017
The Student Health and Counseling Center is here to provide support to our students for medical and counseling needs. We also provide health education, events, and prevention services to empower our students in making healthy choices for themselves.
As we enter the season of cold weather, it is important for you to take care of your health and wellness! Stop by our lobby to pick up a free cold kit. Talk to one of our counselors about how to avoid the seasonal blues. Or join us for one of the many events that our Wellness Education Department is planning for this term!
Tips to stay healthy this winter:
Wash your hands frequently with soap
Exercise, keep moving, and get out to get some fresh air
Make healthy choices with food, don't forget the fruits and veggies
Get a good nights sleep, 6-8 hours!
And when you aren't feeling great, know that our staff is here for you!
Check out our Facebook Page for upcoming events and announcements.
We also have some great ways to get involved and address health and wellness topics on campus, talk to one of our Wellness Educators to find out more!
