Student Health Center to move this
Student Health Center is anticipating a move to the new facility the end
of October, or early November. (The new facility will also house First
Care, a physician group and clinic of St. Bernards, as well as a Sports
Medicine Center.) The Student Health Center will include four exam
rooms, a lab, observation room, a conference room, nursing area, and a
pharmacy for students. (ASU is one of only two institutions in the state
that has an on-campus pharmacy for students). Once the move into the new
facility is complete, the former clinic will be renovated to accommodate
Disaster drill serves important purposes
safety of ASU students, faculty and staff is the primary reason ASU is updating
and improving its emergency operations plan. An exercise on campus last
Monday, Aug. 25, gave the ASU Emergency Operations Planning Committee an
opportunity to test certain aspects of the plan. ASU worked closely with
city, county and state emergency response teams, as well as the Center for National
Response and the 61st Civil Support Team from the Arkansas National Guard.
Several students from Residence Life served as "victims" for the drill.
The benefit of such a plan, of course, is to help everyone be better prepared in the event of an actual emergency. Participants
termed it a very valuable experience because it helped the committee identify strengths in
the plan, as well as weaknesses where revisions are needed. The committee
appreciates the university community's cooperation with the drill.
