Health and Safety

Thomas More College works diligently to ensure the health and safety of our students. Our safety statistics are one of the top in the nation. There are several offices dedicated to the safety and wellness of those on campus. More information can be found at any of the links below.

Campus Safety

The Campus Safety and Security Department strives to make Thomas More a safe, secure place for students to live and learn. This is achieved through crime prevention, proactive educational programming, intervention and continual efforts to increase awareness among members of the community.

The Department of Campus Safety, located in the lobby of the Holbrook Student Center, helps promote and maintain one of nation's safest and most orderly campuses. All safety, medical emergency response, parking and general security are this department's responsibility - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For more information, view the Campus Safety website or contact a Public Safety Office at 341-4867.

Emergency Notification

The cooperation and involvement of all members of the Thomas More College community are essential for maintaining a safe campus. The College has implemented an Emergency Notification System whereby students, faculty and staff are notified within minutes by phone in the event of an emergency. Students are encouraged to enter multiple points of contact into the Emergency Notification System database. The College web site, provides the current status of emergencies on campus. In the event of an emergency, all details and further instruction will be communicated. Students and their families are strongly encouraged to check this page periodically as a way to stay informed in such an event.

Campus Health Center

The Thomas More College Health and Wellness Center is committed to the promotion of active health and wellness for all members of the campus community through health education, illness prevention and wellness assessments. Visits to the health center are free of charge and do not require an appointment. The Center is open Monday - Friday 8:00 am until 4:30 pm during the academic school year.

In accordance with the recommendations from the American College Health Association and the Centers for Disease Control, all incoming students are required to submit a student health form on registration day.

Counseling

The Campus Counseling Center is staffed by three licensed counselors. Services are strictly confidential and free to students. The Office also offers several workshops and educational programming throughout the year.

Some reasons students may speak with a counselor include stress, loneliness, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, anxiety, homesickness, college life adjustment, grief, depression, or personal growth.
