Written by Joe Smearman on September 26, 2019
NORMAL – Illinois State University hosted their Healthy Campus Kickoff earlier this week on campus.
Health Promotion and Wellness used the event to promote ways for students to learn on about their health and wellbeing.
The department at Illinois State University partnered with several sponsors and clubs on campus and off-campus for the event.
Setup at the kickoff included campus recreation, student counselling services, exercises and medicine club, division of student affairs and more to allow students to learn all about their wellbeing.
Executive Director, Dawn Pote for Campus Recreation gave us her insight on the process leading up until the Healthy Campus Week.
“This has been amazing; we’ve been talking about what wellbeing would look like on Illinois State University campus for a couple of years,” Pote said. “Our day to day is celebrating our recognition as a partner with the healthy campus initiative. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work together.”
The Health Promotion and Wellness Department planned to add a new model for Wellness as they add an incentive program.
The department plans provide an abundance of resources available to students around campus. They furthermore planned to help them engage in different wellness activities throughout the year.
The Health, Wellness, and Promotions departments plan to put on more activities throughout the school year for students benefits.
