The Student Health Center (SHC) is an on-campus health facility in the Cornerstone House located on 8th Avenue behind Fritz-Conrad and beside the sorority houses (#27 on the Campus Map).  The Health Center helps to meet the students' optimum wellness through wellness promotion, illness and injury management, and healthy lifestyle choices. All students are eligible to use the SHC with no fees or costs. (All included as part of your tuition). Resident students must have physical examination on file to be treated in the Health Center. The SHC does not currently offer immunizations to students. Laboratory testing at the SHC is limited on a per year basis.
