Health and wellness is a way of life.

Outreach programming offered by the Recreation and Wellness educates students, faculty, and staff on holistic well-being to foster a vibrant campus community, as well as to reduce harmful or unhealthy behaviors within the student population.

We empower students to:

  • Make informed, positive lifestyle choices;
  • Take responsibility for self-care;
  • Achieve optimal levels of well-being in order to reach their full potential.
