A successful college career involves more than how well you perform academically. College is a time when you begin to make choices that will determine your adult way of life. Student Wellness is a cluster of programs and services within the Student Affairs Division focused on supporting student success by enhancing the overall health and well-being of RITís student body. We are committed to providing you with the necessary tools to help shape this path. By practicing holistic wellness, you will find that your life will be both enriched and better balanced now and into the future.
The following seven dimensions of wellness have been separately categorized to help you find on-campus resources pertaining to each of these areas. The services listed within each dimension are not exhaustive, but do represent some primary services and departments at RIT.
Student Health 101
All RIT students are provided with a free subscription to Student Health 101, an e-zine designed specifically for college students. Monthly issues include wellness information aimed at helping you make better decisions and to provide you with a better understanding of the wellness challenges you will face in college today.
