Self Care and Resources

With thousands of students interacting in many ways, the spread of illness can happen very easily. We recognize that there is no way to keep every student healthy at all times but have supplied resources for students to aid themselves and those around them should they become infected with any illness.

Similarly, many students have made the life-style decision to use any number of tobacco products. Using any kind of tobacco product weakens the immune system, making students more susceptible to becoming infected.

Here are resources about how to recognize if you have an illness such as the cold, flu, or a skin infection, and how to handle that illness. There are also resources for those students who wish to quit using tobacco products and elevate their overall health.
