About Health and Wellness

Your health is more than the physical condition of your body. There are multiple aspects of wellness to consider, including your physical, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational, environmental and intellectual health. When one area gets out of balance, it usually affects the other aspects of your life, whether you realize it or not.

The staff of Campus Recreational Services, Counseling & Psychological Services, Rebel Wellness Zone and Student Health Center are dedicated to helping you achieve this balance.
