Welcome to the Student Health and Wellness Center

No one has to tell you the importance of good health.  Keeping fit plays a big part in feeling healthy, but healthiness also requires common sense, wise eating habits, and an awareness of what's happening to mind and body.

You will find our facilities to be very similar to those of your family physician.  The professional staff is here to assist you with your ambulatory medical needs and help you make positive health care decisions.  We ask you to make an appointment for all visits. Most times an appointment can be obtained on the same day that you call. Urgent walk-ins will be accommodated in order of priority. We have qualified medical practitioners in the areas of family practice, gynecology,  and HIV/STI counseling and testing.

At Southern's Student Health and Wellness Center, you will find a physician, advanced practice nurses, and nurses to help you stay in tune with your physical and emotional self.  The staff of the Student Health and Wellness Center can treat illnesses, refer you to specialists, answer your questions, and help you handle medical problems.


The Student Health and Wellness Center is on Wintergreen Avenue near university residence halls and across the street from Moore Fieldhouse.


A Physician, Nurse Practitioners (APRN) and Nurses (RN) are available year round.

It is our duty as health professionals to update you on the current health status of Ebola.  There have been concerns pertaining to the safety of our campus and the threat Ebola poses.  We want to assure the SCSU community and their families that our campus is taking all appropriate preventative measures. 

Ebola Quick Facts:

You can't get Ebola through the air

You can't get Ebola through water

You can't get Ebola through food

You can ONLY get Ebola from touching bodily fluids of a person who is sick with or has died from Ebola, or from exposure to contaminated objects such as needed.  Ebola poses no significant risks in the United States. (FACTS TAKEN FROM CDC.GOV)
