Impact of COVID-19 on Student Health and Wellness

During the March 18 virtual town hall meeting, University President Thomas Katsouleas indicated that our main focus continues to be protecting all individual and population health, but there is now a shift to reducing the University mission as much as possible except for critical activities.

As Student Health and Wellness adjusts to this shift, please visit the links for each of our areas to check availability of services and programs.

Student Health and Wellness

Whether your goal is to improve your health, stay fit, find support, or feel better, the Student Health and Wellness team is here to help and empower you. Our services and programs are designed to promote a healthy lifestyle during your time at college and for years to come.

To request a presentation, program, or interview, please click here. Please keep in mind we will not be conducting any in person programming at this time, and that some programs may not be available virtually.
