How We Help
Wellness and Community Responsibility at EMU
Wellness is the active pursuit of optimal health. When we work on our wellbeing we become the best version of ourselves, allowing us to become better students, friends, colleagues and community members. Here at Eastern, our student wellness program aims to develop all aspects of the student. This includes intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, environmental, occupational social and financial wellbeing. We offer several services and programs to address our student’s in each of these areas.
We offer FREE one-on-one consultations for individuals looking to make a positive change in their life but might need a little help doing so. During your consultations, our Wellness Coordinator will help you use your own strengths and motivations to plan and achieve your wellness goals. Topics may include things such as nutrition, sleep, physical activity, alcohol or drug use, sexual health, physical health, time management, etc. Wellness consultations are not a replacement for therapy but rather a process for setting goals and helping you work toward them.
Financial security is more than just having enough money to buy what you want. It means access to healthcare, reliable transportation, less stress and more opportunity. We offer financial consultations with a Certified Personal Financial Coach who can help you change spending habits, repair credit, create a budget and much more. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
Our office has a plethora of workbooks, self-help books and interesting reads that will help you thrive as a student and young adult entering the working world. Our books range from money management, stress management, nutrition, exercise, ethics, time management, cooking and much more.
Our wellness programming develops the skills students need to thrive here on campus and in the real world. We work with student organizations, resident advisors and other offices on campus to offer monthly events and workshops that address the eight dimensions of wellness. Check out our events section for a full listing our upcoming events. Don’t see what you’re looking for?
