Our Students

Our students are very active in the HSM Student Association on campus and are members of Upsilon Phi Delta Chapter through the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA). In addition, students are engaged in community events such as sickle cell and breast cancer walks. We offer a scholarship for academic excellence annually to the junior student with the highest grade point average (GPA). 


The Nursing and General Education (NGE) Building was completed during the fall of 2014. This 140,000 square foot building is a significant addition to our campus, complementing our new Lyman Beecher Brooks Library, Student Services Building and Student Center. The NGE facility provides state-of-the art learning resources to assure that students are afforded every opportunity to succeed.
