Our goal is to help you concentrate on your education, not worry about your health.

Strive to Be Healthy in Mind, Body and Spirit

That’s why we try to help address all dimensions of wellness, including physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental, occupational and financial. We offer on-campus health care, access to food and clothing, mental health counseling, interactive workshops, referrals to local services, and more.

Taking Care of Your Basic Needs

Food. Shelter. Clothing. College students sometimes suffer to meet these basic survival needs. Students shouldn’t have to choose between eating and learning, attending school or having a roof over their head, or struggle to find the clothing right for a job interview.
