"We really haven't seen any flu," said Chris Kelly, a Registered Nurse at Nazareth College. "We have one possible case."
Freshman Paul Jensen isn't concerned.
"I'm not worried. I usually don't get sick that often."
However, Jensen admits though that his good health isn't just from the power of positive thinking.
"I have handsanitizer with me at all times. I try to not touch as many doorknobs as possible. You know, use your sweatshirt to open the doors and stuff."
He also got a flushot. Something Kelly recommends for all students.
Washing hands, covering your mouth with a sleeve and not touching your face may also help students stay healthy.
Although Kelly says avoiding an illness like the flu can be tough especially living in close quarters.
"They're sharing a living environment with a lot of people so all those germs are, everytime someone touches something, it's there."
If a large number of students do come down with the flu, the college is prepared. Kelly says they'll put the buddy system into place. They'll have the sick student stay in their room, even miss class and having a friend or roomate get them food or whatever they may need.
