Student Health Service will be closed starting Tuesday, Nov. 26th at 5 PM through Monday, Dec. 2nd at 8:15 AM.

Call 336.758.5591 for non-emergencies or 336.758.5911 for the kinds of emergencies where you would normally call 911; University Police can get in touch with on-call duty staff.

If Your Student Has a Problem

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.
