The Student Health Promotion is a department of the Dean of Students within the Division of Student Affairs. We specialize in the prevention of issues that affect students and their ability to be academically successful and graduate. The more we can prevent student issues from being seen as insurmountable obstacles, the less likely a student will need to see a counselor. From alcohol abuse to homesickness, from stress management to sleep management, from roommate conflicts to safer sex, our services are far-reaching. Whatever affects your physical, intellectual, spiritual, social, occupational, emotional, financial and environmental wellness also affects your academics. If you need to speak to someone one-on-one in our office, you can call to make an appointment. We can also do prevention presentations and programs for the classroom, residence halls, sororities and fraternities, athletics, and any student organization. We design large programs that students can participate in throughout the school year. Check out our 'Events' section on the right early to see some of the major programs that Student Health Promotion administers annually.
