Self Care Kit
 
Over the years we have noted that there are items that many students do not bring with them to college. These would usually be found in your home "medicine cabinet" but do not make the college packing list. While we welcome questions and are available to see students for urgent care, we also believe that it is important to learn and utilize appropriate self-care measures. Hear are some suggested items for all students to have on hand to respond to common illnesses. Managing common illnesses and navigating the health-care system may be one of the challenges a college student faces for the first time once they arrive at college. We will do our best to support and educate and these items may help you:
*
Digital thermometer

Small amount of common over the counter medications:
  Tylenol or ibuprofen for pain and fever
