Health Tip of the Month

Eat throughout the day so that you're constantly satisfied. The less you eat, the more likely you are to sink into starvation mode and make your body want to store fat.

Student Health Insurance  

Information for student health insurance is available in our office and the Dean of Students Office (Morgan Hall, Room 104). Purchase of the health insurance plan is optional and is not required for visits to the Student Health Center; however, given the potentially astronomical cost of medical care it is strongly recommended.  To download the brochure, click here
