Health and Wellness
One of the most important ingredients for an enjoyable college experience is staying healthy and physically fit. Although CCC does not have
an on-site medical clinic, the faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a safe environment.
Upon arrival at the College for check-in,
you will be asked to present a form of insurance, whether individual student insurance or as a dependent in a family HMO insurance plan.
If your policy does not include out-of-state coverage, CCC will provide you with information to take out a student insurance plan that
offers coverage while you are at college.
Unforeseen circumstances may arise, but
Clearwater Christian College has prepared in advance for emergency medical situations. A
service list of doctors, dentists, chiropractors, and optometrists is posted in every unit and walk-in clinics and full-service
hospitals are within minutes from the campus. Refrigerators are located in every unit/dorm room for necessary medical supplies. Resident Directors
are available at any time to provide assistance in a
medical emergency, to provide transportation to a doctor, or to make sure that you are getting necessary rest. At check in,
please list all pre-existing medical conditions and medications that you are currently taking. By giving permission to staff to
review this information, you will help us help you in the event of an emergency.
Similar to any situation when you are away from home, please include a Pharmacy Pack in your luggage. Basic health items could
be included, such as BandAids, Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, sunscreen, and sunburn cream. Vitamin C and a daily vitamin supplement
could also be included to help you stay healthy during your first few months at CCC.
I chose CCC because of the Christian environment. I also really liked that CCC is a smaller school. I feel like I do not get lost in a crowd here, but instead I have the chance to really get to know people and form relationships. As a transfer student from another Christian college, I see that CCC is different. The biggest difference is the professors. At my other school I did not get to know the professors, but here at CCC, the professors are always there for you when you need them and they really make an effort to get to know you. As a member of Joy Club, a service organization at CCC, I am able to go and spend some time with kids who just need someone to hang out with them, and it is amazing. I love the opportunity to go and just spread the love that God has given me to these kids.
