Paws n Play wellness program

About us:

Student Wellness develops, implements, and coordinates health and wellness programs for the University community. The Student Wellness Office is located in room 219 in the Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness Center. 

Being well can help you do well inside and outside of the classroom. Self-care - including quality sleep, good nutrition, and knowing how to cope with stress - all contribute to your ability to thrive as a USI student. Wellness is an active, continuous process of self-enhancement. Every day you make choices that influence your own well-being.

Throughout the year, we partner with campus departments/organizations and local community agencies to provide wellness outreach events including:

  • Educational programs about various health topics
  • Free and confidential HIV testing
  • Pet therapy for stress management
  • Bystander intervention training 
  • Safe Spring Break Fair
  • Sexual assault and domestic violence awareness 

For a list of upcoming programs, please see the Event Calendar.

What is Wellness?

Wellness extends beyond just the physical, and is a multi-dimensional state of being.  It's all about balance! Click on each segment of the Wellness Wheel to learn about the dimension and to find resources just for you at USI.
