Health Center: what’s up, Doc? Reply

By Holly Feola & John Maclean – 1851 Staff

Recently, some students have questioned the timeliness and thoroughness of health professionals in the Health Services office.

I think Health Services should open 10 minutes before their official hours to prevent patient waiting. Once, I arrived at Health Services at 8:20 a.m. No lights were on and there was no one there, despite center’s 8:30 to 4:30 hours. At 8:30 a man unlocked the door. Then, I waited five minutes for a nurse to check me. By opening a few minutes ear- lier, I would’ve been able to have my appointment when scheduled, rather than five minutes later.

Technology is a troubling temptation Reply

I was standing by the toaster waiting for my bagel when I tried making light conversation with the girl next to me, who was also waiting for toast. I mentioned how brave she was to be wearing Birkenstocks in 10 degree weather…but the conversation did not move past this. She didn’t even acknowledge that I was talking to her. The girl’s head was buried in her phone, unaware that I was two feet away talking and looking at her directly. It was in this moment that I became disappointed and at out annoyed with how disengaged college students have become, thanks to the trance their technologies send them into.

Clint Hill makes an impact Reply

Marissa Gugala- 1851 Staff

Professor Paul DeBole hosted a Skype call from Secret Service Agent, Clint Hill on February 28. Hill, an agent during the presidency of John F. Kennedy, was present at the time of Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963.

Hill described the events that occurred during the presidential parade, as he perceived them.  He was the first to react when shots were fired at the President and First Lady.  He saw the president grab his skull and started to fall.  “At that time, I had realized it was a gunshot,” Hill said.  Just before he made it to the vehicle to attempt to cover the president and his wife with his body, Hill heard a third gunshot.  He said, “I not only heard it.  I felt it…”
