SU Wellness Week to Kick Off April 15
Syracuse University’s second annual Wellness Week, presented by Health & Wellness Promotions in the Division of Student Affairs, and in sponsorship with Tops Friendly Markets, will kick off Monday, April 15.
A variety of campus departments and student organizations have collaborated on this year’s “Celebration of Wellness.” Students, faculty and staff are invited to participate in the week’s fun, feel-good educational activities.
“The purpose of Wellness Week is to highlight the many programs and services SU offers to improve student and employee well-being in a fun way,” says Katelyn Cowen, health and wellness promotions specialist. “This is also a great opportunity to try something new.”
The week will begin with a 5K Run/Walk and the Monday Mile organized by Recreation Services, IFC, UNICEF and Healthy Monday Syracuse. On Wednesday, April 17, a Health and Wellness Expo will take place in Flanagan Gymnasium to provide the University community with access to the most distinguished local organizations that spotlight healthy products and services. A student favorite from last year’s Wellness Week, “Paws for Stress Relief,” will return Thursday, April 18, on the Quad. The #BEWise campaign will close Wellness Week 2013 on Friday, April 19, with a BE-BQ on the Quad.
Other activities are yoga classes and a Tai Chi demonstration on the Quad, meditation habitats, a showcase by the Orange Pulse Dance Troupe and Laugh in Peace, a nationally acclaimed comedy act, at Hendricks Chapel.
