The Wellness Center needs to be open on the weekends.
Injuries and sickness don't just stop on the weekends, and plenty of out-of-staters can't go home to be tended to. It's foolish to pay to see an off-campus doctor when we're supposed to have covered visits here. What's the point of living on campus and paying for health coverage if it's not available to us everyday?
After many conversations with the Director of the Health Center and Student Life, it has been decided that keeping the Health Center open on the weekends is not feasible. Trading the high level of care and great services students receive during the year for staying open extra days is not an option.
Fortunately, the new Urgent Care Center on Heritage and 6th has quick, friendly service and has reasonable co-pays. It is an ideal option as it is close and open 24/7.

So what is the update? I can't believe it was closed on the weekends ever that is ridiculous.
