Health and counseling services
Health Services is primarily
interested in the prevention of disease and the treatment of minor
injuries and acute illnesses. The Institute maintains limited
health care services, with a nurse and a physician who keep limited
office hours on campus five days a week. A medical form sent to all
entering students requests a thorough physical examination, history
of immunizations and other background information. These records
are kept on ﬁle in the Health Services office and are mandatory
conditions of enrollment.
The Institute cannot assume responsibility for the regular
treatment of a student's chronic condition present when the student
enters the Institute; however, the Health Service will supervise
the treatment and general health while the student is under the
care of the family physician. Ordinarily, common medicines and
drugs are furnished free. Certain services, such as X-ray
examinations, special drugs and laboratory tests are not available.
These can be obtained off campus via orders from the Health
Rose-Hulman requires all students to show evidence of up to date
immunizations, including a current TB skin test prior to
enrollment. Failure to provide this information will prevent
enrollment of next quarter's classes. Rose-Hulman also requires all
students to either show evidence of health insurance coverage or to
purchase such insurance through the Institute.
The Student Counseling Center
provides individual counseling services to students faced with a
broad range of issues, such as academic stress, homesickness,
relationships, family difficulties, and career concerns, to name a
few. Couples counseling and group counseling is also provided
according to the needs of the students. Staff is available for
consultation services to students, faculty, and staff and is
willing to provide educational workshops as needed. Counseling
services are confidential and are free to all students. Referrals
are made on an as needed basis. The staff is comprised of master's
level counselors who are currently enrolled as second-year doctoral
Counseling Psychology students at Indiana State University.
Supervision is provided to the counselors by a licensed Counseling
Psychologist affiliated with Indiana State University.
