Welcome to Student Wellness &
Health Promotion!

Student Wellness & Health Promotion provides services to support students' behavioral and emotional wellness, and helps students evaluate options for maintaining healthy lifestyles, through prevention, intervention, and education.

Simply put, "nutrition" is about feeding yourself to keep well.

You probably learned about it in grade school. So why will you also find it on Student Wellness & Health Promotion's TO DO LIST for every college student? With today's confusing and contradictory media messages, some of us are never really convinced that we have accurate nutritional information. And even if we do possess the knowledge, with all the pressure, it is sometimes still hard to maintain a healthy nutritional balance and outlook.

And then there are the SPECIAL MITIGATING FACTORS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS! (College students are always being evaluated in special ways. Feeling special yet?!)

Special Mitigating factors

Are any of the above statements resonating with you? If so, come and visit us. We can help. Really.
