Health insurance Open Enrollment Begins Nov. 1

An open enrollment period designated for purchasing new health insurance plans or switching coverage begins on Nov. 1 and extends through Jan. 31, 2017. Western Michigan University has partnered with a health insurance exchange to help students gain access to affordable health insurance plans. This portal set up just for WMU students offers access to health insurance plans selected to be affordable and meet the needs of college students.

Group Counseling Starts in October

Group counseling can be an empowering, safe, and effective way to manage the challenges associated with college life. Counseling Services at Sindecuse offers several groups open to current WMU students. Most groups meet weekly.

Groups offered in fall 2016 include support groups for survivors of sexual assault or abuse, and for students who have suffered loss or trauma. Students can learn to manage anxiety, or maintain healthy relationships in other groups geared to address these concerns. 

Call Counseling Services at (269) 387-1850 if you are interested in participating. You may have a brief pre-screening appointment with a counselor prior to participation.
