Center For Writing

Health & Wellness
Moving Back Home
For those students moving back home for the summer, this transition may be just as important as moving into your first residence hall. It is important to realize that while you have been away, both you and your family may have changed. In the past, some students have found it useful to discuss expectations and considerations with their parents/guardians before returning home. The University’s Office for Student Affairs offers a podcast to make the transition home a comfortable experience for the whole family.
Wondering where you can receive health care over the summer? Students who paid the spring Student Services Fee who need care in the summer are covered by Boynton Health Service through mid-August whether you are taking classes on campus or not. You can go online to the Boynton Health Services website for more information on your healthcare coverage.
