SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
For all those complaining about how Health Services does nothing for you when you're on death's doorstep, this will not come as welcome news. Today, UNH opened "an on-campus clinic for faculty and staff of any University System of New Hampshire institution," according to the University of New Hampshire's Media Relations page. Notice it only applies to faculty and staff. It's great that there will be an urgent care clinic on campus and that much nearer to anyone that gets hurt or sick here, but why isn't it open to students? The article goes on to say that there will be a more formal "grand opening...in the fall,".
I understand that this is to cut down on health care costs in relation to faculty and staff, but hopefully the costs of running the clinic can be reassessed and it can be opened to students at some point (although this may mean a hike in tuition). Still, I think there must be ways to provide this service somewhat cheaply to the students who actually pay their tuition to the school and are forced to find urgent care somewhere off campus.
