Health Center

The health center is dedicated to providing basic, high quality, holistic health care that is easily accessible and responsive to your health needs. At the health center, we are here to help you recover from illness, but we also want to go beyond that by helping students learn how to prevent health-related problems and to achieve optimal wellness. The health center is located in Janzow Top across from the Student Life Office. 

Look for campus-wide health promotion events throughout the semester!
