Welcome to the University Wellness Program Blog!
We’re so happy to have you here! We hope that our content can help you on your personal wellness journey as much as possible!
Content & Purpose
The aim of this blog is to share detailed information about achieving wellness in all seven dimensions of wellness. We’ll write about ways to take care of yourself, ways to get involved in your community, and lots of other topics!
This blog is student-written so everything you read is made by your peers! So, if you’re a student who’s interested in getting involved, don’t hesitate – since the blog is student-run, we’d love any student input! Ask us questions on our Facebook, Twitter, or even Instagram if you have any suggestions for topics or other comments!
University Wellness Program
The University Wellness Program (UWP) is Georgia Southern’s student wellness outreach program that does its best to ensure healthful living among its students. It’s primarily run by the wonderful Michele Martin and the Wellness Ambassadors!
We host events like Health Huts, Worry-Free Wednesdays, SOS week, Wellness Week, Walk A Mile, and many others! If you see us around campus, come and say ‘hi’ (we’ll probably have a cool prize for you if you do)!
View our official university page here. Or stop in to visit us on the second floor, right wing of the RAC!
The Wellness Ambassadors are our fabulous student liaisons. You’ll see them at all of our events. Most of our wellness ambassadors are certified peer educators – which means you can talk to them about any wellness concerns and refer you to helpful campus resources.
If you’re interested in gaining volunteer hours, increasing your personal knowledge about health, making great friends, or gaining a great resume item, then fill out an interest form to become a wellness ambassador today!
Wellie is our whale mascot, representing our slogan “Be Whale, Do Whale” (a near-homophone of our other slogan, “Be Well, Do Well”). You can spot her around Health Huts and other wellness events! Don’t be afraid to ask for a picture – she’s not camera shy!
Thank you for stopping by!
