You may notice your web-based login now looks different for Ringling College services such as Canvas. That is an expected, recent change! Institutional Technology is in the process of migrating the logins for Canvas, Library resources (such as Lynda.com), Room Reservations (25 Live) and more to a new server. The migration of the Canvas login will be completed today and the others will transition to the new login in early January.

Please login using your Ringling College username and password. You should find the new login functions just like the existing one. If you run into any issues or have questions, please give us a call at 941-359-7633 or email support@ringling.edu.

Sincerely,

Subject: Campus Flu Information

Welcome back, and Happy New Year.

Seasonal flu activity is widespread across the United States, and unfortunately has not spared the Ringling campus. According to the CDC, the influenza (flu) vaccine has only been 10% effective this year. The health and safety of the members of our campus community is of the utmost concern, and we want to ensure symptoms are being treated as quickly as possible to reduce both the length and intensity of the virus.

As such, we need your continued cooperation in coming to the Health Center with any medical concerns. Specific flu symptoms can include sudden onset of a fever that present as chills alternating with sweats, muscle aches, fatigue and possible headache. Additional flu symptoms may or may not include diarrhea and vomiting. A common cold however usually includes nasal congestion, cough, sore throat, and at times a fever. The symptoms of the flu can typically last for up to 7 days.

If our medical staff suspects a student has the flu, a student will be asked to abstain from attending classes and other activities until fever free for 24 hours. The Health Center will work with advising to excuse these identified students from class. Excuses from classes are based on a visit with the medical staff at the Ringling Student Health Center, or our associated SMH Urgent Care facilities.

Additionally, we encourage all members of the Ringling College Community to take these simple precautionary measures to help prevent transmission of the flu:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after use. If a tissue is not available cough/sneeze unto your elbow, not your hand. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective. 
  • Sanitize work stations and door knobs/sink faucet handles, etc. to help prevent spreading the virus. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, which can spread germs. 
  • Try to avoid close contact with those who are ill. 
  • Ill persons should keep away from other individuals as much as possible to prevent infecting others and spreading the virus further. 
  • Facemasks are available at the Health Center.
Severe complications from the flu are rare; however, the following persons are at increased risk: those who have chronic medical conditions, immune compromising conditions, those who are pregnant, obese, age 65 or older, or under the age of five.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Health Center at medical@ringling.edu or (941) 309-4000. The campus clinic is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM-4:30 PM. Please note that the Health Center will be closed on Monday, January 15th in adherence of the Martin Luther King holiday. Ringling students may also utilize any of the Sarasota Memorial walk-in clinics listed below. The visit is free of charge as long as a student shows their student ID at registration. These locations are open every day from 8 AM-8 PM. The two closest outpatient centers are:

St. Armands Circle
500 John Ringling Boulevard Sarasota, FL 34236
(941) 952-4750

University Parkway & Honore Avenue
5360 University Parkway Sarasota, FL 34243
