News & Events

Diversity Team Meeting
The Diversity Team will meet this TUESDAY at noon in the President's Dining Room in HSU. All members of the campus community are welcomed to join us.  Feel free to bring in your lunch.

Seasonal Influenza Vaccines
Seasonal Flu Vaccines will be given at the Stone Health Center starting 10/18/17.
Stop by during “normal” business hours (8am-noon and 1-5pm, Monday–Friday) to get your flu shot. Those interested should plan to stay 10-15 minutes after the vaccine.

The virus in these vaccines is an “attenuated/dead virus” so it is NOT possible to get the flu from the vaccine. The cost for the flu vaccines is $5.00 for students and $10.00 for faculty/staff. Thanks to the generosity of the Well Worth It committee! Here’s hoping for a “healthier” flu season!
