WELLWVU and the West Virginia University Student Recreation Center are observing National Collegiate Health and Wellness Week from March 5-9.

This week is a way of increasing student awareness about the importance of staying fit and healthy and educating students about how to do so.

Students are invited to attend a health fair on Monday (March 5) at the Mountainlair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the Student Rec Center from 4-6 p.m. Many informational tables and interactive exhibits will be set up by WVU departments and student organizations related to health and wellness.

A wellness summit hosted by WELLWVU and the Student Wellness Advisory Board will be held after the evening fair. The summit will provide an opportunity for students interested in health and wellness issues to discuss and learn about campus-specific activities. Students will learn how they can become more involved with campus health. A healthy dinner will be provided for those who attend the summit.

The Student Wellness Advisory Board is a student-led organization dedicated to improving the health and wellness of all WVU students.

WELLWVU consists of campus health services, including Student Health, Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services and Wellness and Health Promotion.
