Student & Family Resources

Student Resources


The Office of Student and Family Care serves as a safe setting to listen to student and parent concerns related to navigating college life. Our office is a resource for families, faculty, and staff in supporting students in a holistic way using the Nine Dimensions of Wellness: physical, emotional, social, occupational, creative, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, and financial.

PHYSICAL WELLNESS: The physically well person gets an adequate amount of sleep, eats a balanced and nutritious diet, engages in exercise for 150 minutes per week, attends regular medical check-ups, and practices safe sex.

EMOTIONAL WELLNESS: The emotionally well person can identify, express, and manage the entire range of feelings and would consider seeking assistance to address areas of concern.
