Healthy Living

Today, college students face many challenges and often lead stressful lives.  Healthy living is a lifestyle - a way of living that educates and encourages us to make healthy decisions that enhances our success while in college and beyond. This in turn reinforces lifelong habits to maintain personal and professional wellbeing.  Students who demonstrate the essential skill of healthy living will develop knowledge, skills and attitudes which impact their individual behavior and move their communities towards shared responsibility. 

Specifically, students who have developed the essential skill of Healthy Living:

  • Will identify the attitudes, thoughts, choices, and behaviors associated with lifelong health and wellness.
  • Will learn to incorporate and take an active role in their personal wellness (physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual) that supports a healthy lifestyle.
  • Will utilize coping, harm-reduction and helping skills that support personal and academic success and contribute to increased self-efficacy.
  • Will develop knowledge, skills and attitudes which impact their individual behavior and move their communities towards shared responsibility.
