Health and Wellness

College is often a time of adventure, trying new things, and finding out who we are and what you want out of life.

College can be a time of growth, challenge, and change. A college environment may present new life experiences, like taking care of when and what you eat or how much sleep you get. There may be new sexual pressures or the need to take care of your sexual health.

Similarly, the reality of alcohol and college may present unfamiliar situations and choices. In all the excitement, change, and at times, difficulties of being a college student, keeping a balanced, well-rounded lifestyle may seem its own challenge.

Wellness encompasses physical, emotional, social, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. When one area is not well, all other areas may be affected or feel more difficult or problematic.

Similarly, a balance with some focus and attention to each of the areas often makes life more manageable and enjoyable.

Alcohol & Drugs

Wright State University realizes alcohol and alcohol-related issues are of concern to students. To serve as a resource and active educator to help students deal with alcohol-related concerns, the Office of Student Support’s Health and Wellness Initiatives offers extensive programming and information resources in a non-judgmental, student-focused environment.
