Prioritize Your Health 

Our University Health Services clinic is offering COVID-19 vaccines vaccines on campus. Join in on the Poke-a-thon vaccination campaign to win prizes!

I want you to win

Along with encouraging you to get vaccinated, we expect you to follow CDC guidelines by masking up in public indoor spaces, being tested for COVID when appropriate, staying home from class if you’re sick and washing your hands. Let’s be responsible and protect our Cowboy family.

We provide a variety of mental health resources through University Counseling Services, the Department of Wellness and Student Support and Conduct. We can also connect you with food pantries, financial aid and other essentials through Leadership and Campus Life’s online Basic Needs Resource Center. No matter what, you’re not alone.

Beyond providing vital resources, we want to help you thrive through engagement and leadership.
