Two years ago, there was a campus-wide game of “assassin” at Patrick Henry College. Contrary to what the name of the game might suggest, it’s not supposed to be an injury-inducing type of game. The objective: be the last man standing in what’s essentially a week-long game of tag. It’s normally a blast, but Patrick Henry College students are competitive.
In a desperate attempt to evade her pursuer, one student fumbled on her way down a flight of stairs, managing to tear her ACL.
Thankfully, wounds like these are few and far between, but injuries are inevitable on any campus. Every year, the soccer season brings with it a few bumps and bruises. A student might trip while on a jog or (like me) dislocate a finger playing football.
Thankfully, Patrick Henry College and Purcellville come equipped to help students quickly reach the professional medical help they need. In the event you need to reach a doctor or urgent care during your time at Patrick Henry College, Resident Assistants, Residence Directors, Student Life, and others with cars will happily take you.
At PHC, we recognize that students' mental health is as important as their physical health. Below is a list of medical facilities in the area for both mental and physical maladies.
