Health and Wellness

Each semester, our Health and Wellness Chair hosts a wellness week to promote healthy living for the mind and body.

Through events such as a early Monday morning Parfait day and a luncheon with our Counseling and Psychological Services counselor, we hope the week is a reminder of the importance of mental and physical health!
