Taking time to take care of yourself
Attending law school – with all of its many demands – is no easy task. Rigorous coursework, late-night research and reading, studying for exams … it can really take its toll on your body, both mentally and physically. That’s why at Concordia University School of Law, we encourage all of our students to take care of themselves. Simple things – such as staying hydrated, getting as much sleep as possible, and eating well – may be easier said than done, but they can make a world of difference in your health and well-being.
Student Health & Counseling
Concordia University School of Law has an agreement in place for our students to be able to utilize Boise State University Health Services for health and counseling services. Students are encouraged to contact BSU Health Services directly to schedule appointments. BSU Health Services accepts many forms of insurance. For more information about health providers or counselors, including confidential referrals, please contact Benjamin Cramer, Assistant Dean of Career Services and Student Affairs at (208) 639-5464 or email@example.com.
