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 offers Purchase students confidential voluntary substance use counseling. Please email the Wellness Center Director, Matt Kraus, to inquire about scheduling with a Wellness Counselor.
The Wellness Center also is proud to introduce our Lighthouse Program that offers Purchase students peer led community, programming and social space that is substance free.
