If you’re one of those weenies that haven’t gotten the flu yet, you go out and get it. Go out and get it and take it like a champ. All the cool people have the flu right now. All the cool people. And after you go out and get the flu, come back and read here to figure out how to get rid of it.
You’re waiting in the Health Center, standing next to somebody you’re friends with/ had a class with/ maybe hooked up with, scanning down the ‘confidential’ sign-in sheet for a familiar face. Many of you reading this have been there before: it’s the (probable HIPPA violation) STD clinic.

Thus, I thought I would share some resources that you or somebody you know will inevitably have to utilize during your time here.
The Health Center will be offering free testing for gonorrhea and chlamydia from 3 to 6 pm today. A limited number of HIV tests will also be available, though the number may increase based on demand. The process is confidential, stress-free and there will be self-collection (i.e. no physical exam), so whether you think you need to or not, head down to the Health Center this afternoon to take charge of your sexual health! No appointment necessary. Oh, and say hi to Kim Cullers, because she is the queen.
