The Student Health Service is excited about our move back to the Reynolds Gym. The move should be completed by the first week of August! The clinic will be closed for clinic visits on July 29 and 31, but will be available by phone. We will re-open on August 1 through the 11th for the remainder of the second summer school session. We will open for the fall semester on August 23.
The Student Health Service would like to welcome 3 new providers to our staff. Dr. Stephen Heffner joined us in April, Brooks Irvin, PA joined us in March and Cat Goodyear, PA joined us in July.
Reminder to parents and families of new and returning students: it is always helpful for students to have a first aid kit in their room. Suggestions would include typical first aid supplies such as band aids and a thermometer, but also your student’s favorite cold and cough medications, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen.

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
