COLLEGE HEALTH SURVIVAL KIT

College success will depend on many things - not the least of which is the ability to stay "well". While we wish you a healthy year, sometimes you may need items for a minor illness and/or injury. So, be prepared just in case!

Suggested Supplies:
  • Digital Thermometer (NOT Glass or Mercury)
  • Pain/Fever Medicine
  • Allergy Medicine
  • Decongestant
  • Soothing Throat Lozenges (Herbal or Honey-lemon)
  • Humidifier or Cool Mist Vaporizer
  • Band-Aids
  • Antibiotic Ointment
  • Cortizone Cream
  • Antacid (Liquid or Chewable)
  • Sunscreen
  • Heating Pad/Ice Pack

Note: If you wear contact lenses, bring a spare pair and glasses for "back up"

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS:

The SHC does not have a pharmacy and cannot fill prescriptions written by providers outside the Center. We do have a limited selection of commonly prescribed medications for purchase when prescribed by a SHC provider. If you are taking a medication at home that you will need to refill at school, plan ahead regarding how you will obtain refills. (Medications)
