Since your health is an important factor in your success as
a student, the College encourages wellness through a program
of information and services. Throughout the academic year opportunities
are provided to attend presentations, workshops, and discussions
both on campus and in the community on health and wellness. Because
the College’s faculty, staff, and student community is
diverse, special presentations of interest to women, older students,
students with disabilities, etc., are given special focus.
You are encouraged to be prepared for the need of medical care
by having appropriate accident and sickness insurance. A plan
is provided for all students in the Virginia Community College
System and you are encouraged to look into it. Though there
is no clinic on campus, basic first aid is available through
campus police. Each campus is close to emergency medical services
and clinics and hospitals are readily available.
Health and wellness opportunities are available through fitness
facilities on campus and intramural activities. Each degree
curriculum requires a minimum of one credit of physical education.
