Tobacco Free Campus
January 1, 2011, marked the date when Trine went tobacco free. This is a campus-wide initiative that is designed to produce a higher quality of life for students, faculty and the campus community as a whole.
During their college years, students often experience growth and change. At times, college can be frustrating, stressful and psychological distress can occur. Trine has three Licensed Clinicians available to meet the needs of students. Our Clinicians can provide confidential, short term personal counseling to all students enrolled at Trine free of charge.
Trine's health center is located on the first floor of Alwood Hall. Appointments can be made with our certified Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant who can assess and diagnose health care problems, perform physical examinations, treat both minor and acute illnesses, as well as chronic health problems. Our medical providers can also prescribe medication and consult with external providers as needed.
Wellness Services provides students with a number of free programs, workshops, and activities year-round. The goal is to empower students toward healthy decision-making in each of the 7 different aspects of health and wellness (emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual) and to promote overall student health, safety, and well-being.
Many online resources exist for student use. Listed are several links to sites and phone numbers that explore issues students may encounter.
