Parents & Family

Be informed and stay current with your student's college experience. Staying involved with your student, and knowing what they are doing on campus can contribute to their best college experience. Visit Rowan's Parents & Family website for upcoming events and additional information.

What to Pack:

When coming to college, students should remember to pack a few essential health-related items including:

Copies of Insurance & Prescription Cards
Medical Items or Pills prescribed by your doctor 
Nasal Decongestant 
First Aid Kit
Antiseptic Ointment/Gel
Cold Remedies (Tylenol, Motrin, Robitussin)
Antacids (Tums, Mylanta)
Alcohol-based Hand Gel
Disinfecting Supplies for cleaning door handles, telephones, etc.

Protecting your student from the Flu:

Most Healthy adults may be able to infect others with the flu beginning 1 day before symptoms develop. College students are consistently in large group settings and can benefit greatly from getting a yearly flu shot. Help keep your student healthy and in classes this flu season by encouraging them to their flu shot and practice good hygiene. Flu shots are available at the Student Health Services by appointment.
