Campus Programming and Education

Campus Programs

Our wellness programs are programs, games, and activities created by Peer Health Advocates on a wide variety of topics. These programs can be requested by residence assistants, athletic and intramural teams, clubs, and organizations. All you have to do is request the program you are interested in and a trained Peer Health Advocate will bring the program along with any materials needed to you and facilitate the program with your group.
