Student Health on Campus
Student Health on Campus (SHOC) is run by Colby students under the direction of a staff advisor. SHOC members work to educate students around campus about issues relating to their health and wellness. They develop and present creative, interactive workshops including stress reduction, responsible drinking, healthy eating, and sexual health. Members also organize and promote different events on campus such as wellness seminars, blood drives, and a “stressbuster” fair. If you are interested in joining SHOC, please contact the staff advisor, Katie Sawyer.
