If students who are not feeling well are unable to go promptly to the Dow Zanghi Health Center, they should let someone know about their condition so they can get the support and assistance they may need. Students living in college residence halls may notify their Resident Advisor. Students who live off campus should notify a friend, roommate or family member. Students who have been diagnosed with, or believe they have a communicable disease should also notify the Student Affairs office in Room 807 Main at (212) 774-0750.
