Health Community

The Health Living Learning Community (LLC) is a great fit for students with academic interests ranging from nursing, athletic training, and exercise science to public health. It is also an ideal community for students interested in developing and maintaining a healthy body, mind, and spirit!  Wellness encompasses the emotional, physical, intellectual, social, environmental, and spiritual aspects of collegiate life and beyond. Programming and community building activities focus on leading a balanced and active life. The Health LLC explores resources and tools to support students in their own health and wellness goals, and how these goals contribute to academic success as well, and is slated to be housed in Upton Hastings Hall for the fall of 2020.
