Health and Wellness

Whole mind and body approach 

Everyone works better when they feel good and limit stress. That is why we think about your health and wellness — physical and emotional — as part of your academic life.

Take a deep breath

Dance. Go for a walk. Seek out a Central State counselor. Visit the waterfall off U.S. 42. Breathe in nature in our relaxing botanical garden.

We will help you find ways to cope with whatever life is dishing out. And we will always be here for you.

Fitness for every body

Central State’s state-of-the-art fitness center — with its weight room, courts, and pool — makes it easy to stay strong. Two Marauder athletics facilities support our teams. 

Health and wellness resources

Central’s Health and Wellness Center has a holistic approach that includes medical care, counseling services, disability services, a relaxation room, and a study resource room. We are here for all your health needs. 

  • Our medical clinic offers a full range of professional services — including sexual health consultations, nutrition advice, and specialist referrals. 

  • Get the support you need with individual counseling from caring professionals. You can also access science-based tips for coping with reducing stress.

  • Join licensed counselors, guest speakers, and other students in an array of safe, supportive environments to help you navigate what you are going through, no matter what it is, and explore the impact of college on your overall well-being. 

  • Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS) helps Marauders say no to alcohol and drug use with personalized, nonjudgmental feedback, advice, and ongoing support. 

  • Need some time away from it all? The relaxation room has massage chairs, relaxation CDs, foot massagers, and more. It is a space where students come to meditate, de-stress, regroup, or just chill. 

  • All new and transfer students are required to register with Med+Proctor to submit health and immunization information and a current physical. Please do not submit these items directly to the CSU Health & Wellness Center. Med+Proctor manages the entire process.
