Health & Wellness
Health & Wellness is located in Pate Hall.
We provide health and wellness education, routine medical and first aid services, and referral services to students, staff, and faculty through its campus clinic. The Clinic is staffed by a Registered Nurse with many years of experience in college student health. The Clinic is open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Health and Wellness Center in Pate Hall except during holidays and breaks. Scotland Urgent Care, numerous medical specialists, and the hospital emergency room are within minutes of campus. For urgent medical issues after clinic hours, students may seek help at Scotland Urgent Care at (910) 277-8300 (open 8:00 am to 7:30 pm every day of the week) or Scotland Memorial Hospital Emergency Services at (910) 291-7000 ( open 24 hours a day) or call 911 for emergency care to come to campus. If 911 is called, students should notify Campus Safety at (910) 280-2895, as well.
All degree-seeking students are required to be covered under medical insurance and provide proof of adequate coverage to the Business Office and Campus RN.
Students, faculty, and staff use the Causeway to get from the academic side of campus to the residential side. The Health & Wellness Center is located in the residential section.
College is a time of transition and growth. In addition to the opportunities for intellectual development, college also provides opportunities for students to learn how to deal effectively with relationships of all kinds, balance work and recreation, manage emotional, physical, and mental stress, improve time management skills, and make positive decisions about how they want to live their lives. The Counseling Services staff is available to assist students in dealing with these matters and more through confidential individual and couples counseling.
Counseling Services is located in the Health and Wellness Center in Pate Hall. The counseling staff is provided through a partnership with Robeson Family Counseling Center, an office of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center's CareNet Counseling Centers. All information discussed in counseling is held in confidence to the limits provided by the law. No record of counseling is made on students’ academic transcripts.
Licensed professional counselors Charles Wentz and Mary Neil Thompson are providing the services to St. Andrews.
