Wellness Center

- Please welcome Carol DiDominicis! She will be looking for feedback for how the Wellness Center can best serve the students.

- The one free counseling session is very helpful for students

- Can we make sure that all new students know that they have one free counseling session?

- Could there be a chapel announcement made announcing the free session? Maybe at the start of both semesters or during mid-terms/finals?

- The physical health side of things of the Wellness Center seems less developed than the Counseling services (lacking in availability of times to see the nurse/doctor and the price being expensive)

- Can there be a pre-intake screening for students so they know if the nurse can really help them before getting charged?

- Can there be better communication about all of the things that the Wellness Center offers?

- Can there be more posters around campus that help communicate all of the services? A large display set up in Upper Commons?

- Could emails be utilized better to help communicate all of the services available?

- Could someone send an email out personally?

- Putting the minimum amount of information needed on posters/displays in areas around campus that are highly populated

- Adding who to contact to emails/posters and having their pictures with the information

- Editing the Wellness Center chapel slide so it is legible to students reading it

- Using QR code to keep the information on posters/slides brief

- Training/informing the student leaders on campus about what the Wellness Center offers so they can refer students to the Wellness Center

- Informing student leaders about what the Wellness Center does/who to talk to, and specific events coming up from the Wellness Center

Free massages happening in the Wellness Center in April and May!
