One of the best things about Wesleyan is that we are a community within a community. Almost everything that a student needs can be found right here on campus. You can count on every kind of support, from academic to technical to medical to social.
College faculty and staff are trained and available to help students with most of the support services needed. So, don't be afraid to ask for help. It's all right here!
Located in the Olive Swann Porter building, Health Services is staffed by a family nurse practitioner who provides medical treatment for common, non-life-threatening illnesses, treatment of minor injuries, and physical examinations. The nurse practitioner also provides personal health education and co-ordinates programs on health related topics. A physician is available on campus by appointment. There is no charge for Health Services visits for full-time students. All medical information in Health Services is confidential.
All new students are required to complete college medical requirements including immunizations, tuberculosis test, and a physical examination. All full-time traditional students, full-time Encore students, and all students living on campus are required to have health insurance that meets our college waiver requirements. Health insurance with coverage in Macon is required for all students to cover off-campus medical care. Students with chronic illnesses may be referred to local physicians for management. Off-campus referrals may be needed for diagnostic tests or treatment beyond the scope of Health Services.
There are several medical facilities close to campus that provide treatment when Health Services is closed. Navicent Health Urgent Care, located 925 Zebulon Road, is available for urgent medical care. Coliseum Northside Hospital Emergency Room, located at 400 Charter Boulevard is available for emergency treatment.

Student Counseling Services (SCS) provides short-term individual counseling to currently enrolled, full-time Wesleyan College students. Individual counseling provides an opportunity to explore your concerns on a one-to-one basis within the context of a confidential relationship. The counseling model attempts to empower you with the resources needed to make positive changes in your life. The counselor and student work together to define and discuss personal issues and reach mutually agreed upon goals.
Counseling is not a mysterious process. It is a process in which you and I work together to overcome obstacles which may be preventing you from reaching your fullest potential. Student Counseling Services (SCS) provides assistance designed to promote the academic, personal, and social growth. The college years are filled with exciting and challenging times for you. It is normal, even expected, that you will encounter difficult or stressful events. However, when you use the resources available to you, there is a much greater chance of success and overall sense of well-being.
