Student Health Center to move this fall
The 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 academic advising.

Disaster drill serves important purposes
The 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.
