Flu season is not over.
This year's flu season has been bad and as residence halls and classrooms fill up, students, faculty and staff are asked to do what they can to prevent the spread of infection. Flu shots are still available at Health Services. Please wash your hands regularly, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and if you feel yourself getting sick, come to Health Services, located in the back of Bell Hall. For more information about the flu and its symptoms, visit: http://www.flu.gov/
