Events and Engagement

Student Wellness recognizes the importance of engagement for students and has committed to providing active and educational opportunities in which students may develop their skills, abilities, community, and understanding of health and wellness. By providing opportunities for students to engage with the community, acquire safer-living products, and try new skills, Student Wellness hopes to communicate a general understanding and importance of health and wellbeing. 

Programming efforts are presented through active events across campus, tabling initiatives in which students may choose to walk up and engage with team members, and educational campaigns in which information is delivered through flyers and across social media. Each event or campaign highlights one of the eight pillars of wellness and offers a preventative or remedial lens.

Eight Dimensions of Wellness

Wellness is a broad concept that can be reduced down into eight areas: emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual parts. Although there are many nuances involved in the unique nature of an individual's life and culture, the dimensions of wellness have been recognized by most as an effective starting place. Student Wellness attempts to recognize the importance of each dimension through a variety of programming initiatives in an attempt to foster an enriched and healthier life for each of our students.
