Student Health


Freedom to explore the possibilities of life is a big part of what college is all about.

But college also can be physically and mentally demanding. Students may exercise their new-found freedom by:

  • Studying too hard
  • Working too hard
  • Getting insufficient sleep
  • Eating an unbalanced diet
  • Playing too hard
  • Ignoring a potentially serious illness

Issues about sex, sexuality, alcohol and drugs also confront today's college students. Is your child ready to handle these facts of life? Are you ready to have your student deal with these issues? Take time to discuss what to do in case of illness and the issues concerning alcohol and drug abuse.
