Be Well!

The Jay Johnson Wellness Center promotes the development of the whole person and encourages a lifestyle that integrates emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational well-being.

The Wellness Center staff assists students in changing or removing barriers to learning, and empowers them to discern and pursue their own personal mission.

Student Health and Counseling staff embody the Lasallian charism and work as a team to fulfill this mission both responsively, through a holistic approach to all dimensions of well-being, and proactively, through educating, motivating, and serving as liaisons for students among other university and community services.
