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.
As a resource, the dean of Student Development on each campus
provides a list of companies that offer student health insurance
programs. 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.
