UA answers your questions about the flu
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Not feeling good, but you’re not sure if it’s a cold or the flu? The University has created a Web site to help with such questions.

So far, there have been no confirmed cases of the H1N1 flu virus on campus, and most of the cases nationwide have been mild.

If you are experiencing flu symptoms, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our health professionals recommend that you stay home for at least 24 hours until after your fever is gone, except to get medical care or other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.) Notify your professors by phone or e-mail of your illness as soon as possible, and be prepared to make up any work that is missed. And let UA’s Student Health Services know of your illness, so that we can track its progress, if any, on campus. The number is 330-972-7808. Learn more.

The Philosophy Club, in order to celebrate the opening of the new Summa Field at InfoCision Stadium, will have a meeting on Tuesday, September 15th in the Student Union rm. 308 to discuss philosophical issues related to sports.

Ethics is an important branch of philosophy. What are the ethics of performance-enhancing drugs? Should we allow athletes to take currently banned performance-enhancing drugs? According to Jose Canseco, as many as 85% of all baseball players have used steroids, so why not just allow them to do it?

These and other issues will be discussed.

Tues., September 15th, Student Union room 308, at 5:00 PM.
