Be Well On Campus: 5 Colleges With Strong Wellness Programs

“Today is your day to start fresh, to eat right, to train hard, to live healthy, to be proud.”
– Bonnie Pfiester

Wellness is an important part of a student’s college experience because it provides time for self-care, growth, and a breather from the academic stressors of campus life. Here are 5 schools with wellness programs that will put the focus back on the student. 

  1. WPI’s Center for Well-Being provides students with an opportunity to take a deep breath away from the busyness of campus. The Center includes a Rest & Reflection Room where students are encouraged to sit for 15-minutes in prayer, mediation, or with such practices as red-light therapy.
  2. The Wellness Coaching Program at Florida State University  encourages students to take care of themselves by learning better sleep habits, managing stress, and experimenting with relaxation techniques. 
  3. The University of Missouri focuses on mental wellbeing through movement in group exercise, meditation during bi-weekly in-person sessions, and motivation by way of a Reclaiming Your Roar class to beat off depression. 
  4. The C3 Program at Arizona State University helps students overcome issues that may get in the way of a successful educational journey as well as impact their future life and career.  
  5. The University of Massachusetts in Amherst has quite a few programs prioritizing health and wellness including “Let’s Talk” which provides students with free Zoom sessions with counselors and the Student Union Craft Center which provides crafting supplies on campus.
