Parents - Send Your Student a Get Well Package

We understand it is hard to be away from your son or daughter when they are sick. That is why Sodexo has put together the Get Well Package. Filled with chicken noodle soup, assorted herbal teas, fresh fruit, crackers, and ginger ale, this package is sure to put your student on the mend!


Take Care of Yourself

We are sorry if the flu has you down. Here are a few tips to help you feel better:

Get some sleep
Your body needs to rest. Head to bed to give yourself time and opportunity to heal.

Drink plenty of fluids
This is not an old wives tale. Ample amounts of water, juice, and tea will keep you hydrated and flush impurities out of your system. Drink up!

Eat healthy food
Your body needs vitamins to build itself back up. Stay away from junk food and eat something nutritious. Request a meal tray from your RA if you need to.

Take some Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
Have a fever? Tylenol will bring it down and take care of your aches and pains. Make sure you follow the dosage instructions on the label closely.

Enjoy some alone time
This is not the time to chill with friends. Protect them by avoiding social situations and large gatherings. Believe us, they will thank you for it.

Being sick is not fun, but it won’t last forever. Follow these suggestions and you should feel like yourself again soon.
