** MenB vaccine (Trumenba/Bexsero) is NOT the same as MenACWY (Menactra/Menveo) and therefore MenB DOES NOT fulfill the state vaccine requirement for dorming. MenB vaccine is highly recommended but not required for university attendance unless indicated by a YES response on the meningitis risk questionnaire.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Counseling, Health and Wellness Center will continue to make counseling and healthcare accessible to our students. Most of our services are now offered virtually, conveniently through a phone or video conference.
