Health & Wellness
Cura Personalis refers to the Jesuit value of "care for the whole person." At SCS, we know that succeeding in the classroom requires more than simply providing expert instruction. That's why we offer a number of resources to ensure you have opportunities to nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
A private wellness room is available to students, faculty, and staff who seek respite. The room—suited for nursing mothers and those who are not feeling well—is equipped with a couch, refrigerator, and sink. Please sign in at the reception desk in the main lobby on Level 1 to receive the key to the room. There is a $10 fee for an unreturned or lost key. See the SCS Wellness Room Policy for more information.
