Staying healthy and happy
A healthy mind and body are essential to making the most of the college experience, so we offer a number of resources to support our students' health and wellness.
Get in shape at Alumni Gymnasium, which houses the Breazzano Fitness Center. Here you’ll find all the machines and free weights you need, plus squash and racquetball courts, swimming and diving pool, and classes in everything from aerobics to spinning.
The Wicker Wellness Center offers a comprehensive array of health, wellness and counseling services, and is home to Jenna the therapy dog. Health Services, located on the first floor, is staffed by nurse practitioners, registered professional nurses and a collaborating physician. The second-floor Eppler-Wolff Counseling Center for Psychological Services offers confidential counseling as well as group education and outreach opportunities to help you manage the challenges of college life, or simply to lend an ear when you need one.
