In addition to my room, where else is a good place to study?
There are a variety of places on campus that are great for studying. Some of the places include the Main Lounge of your building, the study room of your building (where applicable), the Library, the Student Union Building, or in one of the academic buildings. Many buildings are open until late into the evening, allowing students to study and use science and computer labs. You'll also find many students outside on benches or in the grass studying.
Is there a Post Office on campus?
Yes. It is located on the Lower Level of the SUB (Student Union Building). Each student is issued a mailbox and is required to check it regularly. Students not assigned a box number by the beginning of Orientation should check with the Post Office staff as early as possible for an assignment. For more information, call 869-5263 or see the appropriate section of the Student Handbook.
Where does my mail need to be sent?
Campus Box # _._._
2911 Centenary Boulevard

If you need to receive a package, have it sent to your usual campus box and the post office will notify via a note in your box when it arrives.
Where do I go if I get sick?
The Health Services office is located at the South end of Rotary (the door facing Kings Highway). Health Services offered are "first care," consultation, wellness programs, and provider referrals that meet the needs of the majority of students.
