Get Your Wellness On!

This week is WELLNESS WEEK! Ok, I may be more excited than you are right now, but let me tell you why. Wellness Week is a week filled with fun activities that each focus on a different aspect of Wellness. These events and activities take place throughout the week at different times, so there is a variety to choose from to participate in. The best part is…….it’s FREE!


Let me break down the events that I am most excited about by the dimension of wellness it represents.

The Counseling and Career Development Center will be facilitating the Clothesline Project at the Russell Union on Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The project allows students to fight violence against women by creating a shirt. It is encouraged that victims make shirts as well as shirts in memory of victims.

Learn how to “be green while saving green” through hands-on and minds-on activities in the Sustainable Solutions Exhibit at the Georgia Southern Museum on Tuesday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Attending this exhibit will increase your understanding of how innovative technology and smart design can make a difference. Recognize and celebrate the ability to help sustain our planet!
