No OB-GYN or Allergy shot services will be performed on campus; however, the Health Center will provide a list of off campus facilities that provide these services.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
