A Semester of Self-Care

Self-care isn’t as easy as it seems. As college students, it can be hard to prioritize our own health, especially when we are pushed to prioritize academics, work, and extracurriculars. However, how we take care of ourselves now determines our health in the future, which is why developing good self-care habits is important.  Engaging in self-care is crucial for achieving optimal wellness in order to manage stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.  This program targets six wellness dimensions (Interpersonal, Emotional, Financial, Academic, Physical, Spiritual) with events, lectures, and workshops to keep you moving forward in your wellness journey.
