The Wellness Center is a resource to help students live well at Purchase College.
The Wellness Center offers programs and services that holistically address different areas of wellness and health—intellectual, environmental, vocational, social, emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual. The Wellness Center focuses on prevention to help students reduce stress, manage their emotions, live mindfully and be aware how things like sleep, nutrition, exercise and substance use can impact their quality of life.
The Wellness Center provides the students prevention programming for Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs to help reduce access and use of illegal substances, reduce negative outcomes associated with substance use and increase student success and academic engagement. The Wellness Center also offers Purchase students confidential substance use counseling.
Wellness believes in yoga “for a natural high.” The benefits to yoga are numerous and include stress relief, feeling good in your body, and being mindful or grounded. We offer a schedule of Yoga Classes in our Wellness Center that are free to all students and faculty. We also have mats and blocks that students can use. The Fall 2018 yoga schedule will be posted here within two weeks of classes starting.
