To reserve a time slot at any of the upcoming dates, visit or call 614-292-4700 and use Appointment Code SL2018. By annually completing the PHA and a verified biometric screening, enrolled employees can reduce the cost of their medical contributions by $20 per month or by $30 per month if they and their enrolled spouse/same-sex domestic partner both complete the PHA with verified biometrics.

Student Life will be hosting another Career Closet event for students on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year, Career Closet helped nearly 800 students find professional attire needed for opportunities, such as career fairs, interviews, internships and employment. Please consider donating your gently used professional clothing, shoes and accessories to the Student Life Career Closet. All donated clothing will be used to provide a closet where students can “shop” for free professional attire. Donations will be accepted through February 9. More information and a complete list of drop-off sites is online. Donation receipts are available upon request.
