University Health Services has received reports of an increase in GI symptoms in the past few weeks. Although many things can cause an upset to the digestive tract, this is the time of year when we most frequently see norovirus, a gastro-intestinal pathogen. Often referred to as the "stomach bug" or "stomach flu," norovirus is highly contagious and easily spread person to person, through contaminated food, and by touching surfaces contaminated with the virus. With THON coming up in just a few weeks, this is the time to be taking measures to stay healthy.
Penn State Hazleton's Office of Student Aid will conduct a financial aid workshop on Tuesday, February 9, at 6 p.m. in 115 Evelyn Graham Academic Building on the campus. This free session is open to parents and students planning to attend any college or university.
