Primarily interested in the prevention of illness
and the treatment of minor ailments, the Institute maintains a limited
health care service, with a nurse and a physician who keep office
hours on campus five mornings a week. A medical form sent to all
entering students requests a thorough physical examination and history
of immunizations and other background health information. These
records are kept on file in the Health Service Office.
The Institute cannot assume responsibility for
the regular treatment of a student's chronic condition present when
he 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, drugs and medicines are
furnished free; but certain services, such as X-ray examinations,
special drugs and laboratory tests, are not available on campus.
Rose-Hulman also requires all students either to show evidence of
health insurance coverage or to purchase such insurance through
The entire counseling program is coordinated by
the Student Affairs Office. There is a close working relationship
between that office, resident assistants, academic advisors, and
the faculty. Although in some instances referrals to the central
office are made by the advisor, faculty, and others, the student
is encouraged to visit the counselors in the central office any
time he or she has concerns which might be mediated by a professional
counselor. The student will find that the nature of any visit to
the counseling office is treated in a highly confidential manner.
Rose-Hulman also provides professional counseling
service through the Health Office in the Union Building. Students
can stop by the Health Office during morning hours to make appointments
with the counseling staff.
The Learning Center, located in the lower level
of the Logan Library, offers academic assistance in the areas of
chemistry, computer science, math, physics, and writing. Peer tutors-specially
trained students supervised by professional staff-do the majority
of tutoring at the Center, working one-on-one with students. The
Learning Center sponsors special evening sessions on topics ranging
from "Conquering Test Anxiety and Managing Stress" to
"Using PowerPoint for Oral Reports."
The Center is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
every school day and is open Sunday-Thursday nights from 7:00 to
9:00 p.m. Additional tutoring appointment times and individualized
tutoring schedules are available upon request.
