Living Well provides a space  for students committed to living a well-balanced and engaged lifestyle with other like-minded individuals. In these communities, all students choose to live free of alcohol, tobacco, and other mind-altering substances both on and off campus.

Students discuss and participate in activities to pursue a balanced life in mind, body, and soul. Living Well encourages students to maintain active lifestyles by engaging in healthy eating and exercise, managing stress and time, and exploring spirituality and reflection.

Campus resources made readily available to the Living Well community include staff from Health Education, Yates Field House, Residential Living, Outdoor Education, and Campus Ministry.

Will there be openings in Living Well next semester that I could move into?

If there’s such a strong desire from students to move to this community, how come the community isn’t bigger?
