We are your on-campus medical practice providing the same level of care and expertise that you would get at home. Health Services is staffed by experienced, skilled, and compassionate professionals.


It's Influenza Season

This is a friendly reminder to all students that we are currently in influenza season. The Center for Disease Control website is a wonderful resource to find information on basic questions you may have.

Quick Tips

Help lower your risk of contracting influenza.

  • Avoid close contact with sick individuals
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your mouth and nose
  • Wash your hands or use a alcohol based hand rub
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Practice other good overall health habits

It is important to remember that most of the time you can treat influenza safely at home but if at any time you feel it necessary, please seek medical attention. Health Services staff are available during operating hours to answer any of your questions. Please feel free to contact us anytime.

University Closures

Health Services is not open during university weather closures. If medical attention is needed, please visit the local area clinics/physicians.
