The Florence J. Hunt Student Health Center is located across from the C.V. Troup Administration Building and Josephine Lewis “Josie” Hall. The center is staffed by a director, physician, two staff nurses, two nurse assistants and an office manager. The center is open M-F (8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) while the university is in session and provides health care and services for students who register for six or more credits.

The Health Center provides proactive health promotion and primary prevention services, and medical/clinical services for the students. However, prescription medications and other medical expenses are the responsibility of the students. Students are encouraged to obtain insurance to assist in defraying medical costs. Insurance forms may be obtained in the Office Student Affairs.

All new students, with exceptions for active military and students enrolling in fully online programs, are required to provide evidence of inoculation for Mumps, Measles, and Rubella, and a completed health examination form by a physician. The center recommends additional inoculations for Diphtheria, Hepatitis A and B, Influenza, Meningitis, Polio, Varicella, Tetanus, and TB Screening.

Safety Tips to Prevent from Becoming a Crime Victim

Stay Aware and Don’t Travel Alone

  1. Be mindful of your surroundings, especially at night.
  2. Park in well-lit areas.
  3. Texting while walking prevents you from observing your surroundings.
  4. Listening to music through headphones, while walking, makes you less aware and is a bad idea, especially at night.
  5. Keep your vehicle doors locked at all times and look 360 degrees, before exiting your vehicle to go inside of your home.
  6. Always walk confidently with your head up, and stay alert of your surroundings
  7. Walk with a friend, buddy or a group.
  8. Have your keys ready before you reach your house or apartment door.
  9. If you have to go someplace late at night, notify a friend when you leave, and how long it will take for you to arrive.
  10. Pay attention to description of strangers in and around your area, especially their clothing and build.
  11. Call the police to check out suspicious strangers in your area.
  12. Carry your Student I.D. with you at all times.

Secure Yourself and Your Home

  1. Make it a habit to lock your doors after entering your homes. Check to see your doors are secure before you fall asleep at night.
  2. Never open your house or home to strangers or unwelcome visitors.
  3. Don’t broadcast your activities or personal information on social media.

Protect your valuables

  1. Never leave valuables, purses, wallets in plain view of your apartment or vehicle windows.
  2. Do not wear flashy jewelry, especially when walking home alone: it entices thieves.
  3. Never leave valuables, purses, wallets, in plain view of your apartment window or unsecured inside of your vehicle.
  4. Keep serial numbers stored of cell phones and digital equipment (laptops, tables, etc;)
  5. Install “Find Me” apps or locator apps on your smart phones.
  6. Write distinguishing marks on your property.
