Programs and Services

The services provided by the The Office of Wellness Education and Promotion are designed to support, educate and mentor students, providing strategies to increase resilience while eliminating harmful behaviors.

Specific programs and services include:

  • Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students (BASICS): A one-to-one program to discuss substance use/abuse, and to determine if there is a possible concern. The student will meet with the Coordinator twice to review patterns of substance use.
  • CHOICES about Alcohol: A 90 minute risk reduction class to reduce the negative harmful effects of binge drinking.
  • Wellness Wednesday and Beyond:  During select Wednesdays specific programs will be made available to students, such as: aromatherapy, relaxation exercises, Tails of Joy Pet Partners and others. Each program will provide information for increasing coping strategies and resiliency and at times will include promotional items!

For more information about any of the above services, please contact the office, at 860-465-2821.
