University Well-Being

Tips to help obtain optimal well-being:

  1. Establish healthy habits: whether that be a daily schedule that includes physical activity or meal planning, setting healthy habits during the first weeks of the semester is helpful to well-being.
  2. Sleep: lack of sleep can reduce the ability to focus. Make sure you are practicing a healthy sleep routine. Take a nap!
  3. Finances: look into applying for a campus job via Handshake or look into the campus credit union, PSECU.
  4. Get involved on campus: meet new people, volunteer, and join clubs. Check out Engage.
  5. Stress is real: make sure you are well acquainted with campus resources, such as our Health and Wellness Center or Student Success Center to name a couple, to help manage stress.
