The Health and Safety Fair was hosted in the Student Center on Thursday, Sept. 29. The main focus of the fair was to bring about a very important theme on campus: awareness.

Numerous clubs from around campus (and off campus) gathered together in the Student Center to spread awareness of the opportunities to get involved. Some of the organizations included the Deborah L. Coffin’s Women’s Center, Campus Recreation, Public Safety, and the Wellness Center itself.

The Wellness Center provides students with multiple resources when it comes to health and safety while on campus. The Wellness Center not only offers health services, but also counseling and educational services.

Counseling services are designed to help any student with issues they feel are inhibiting them from being successful, not only in school, but also in everyday life. Professionally trained staff are there to help students cope with anything they need additional assistance with.

Everything is completely confidential and may include either individual or group counseling depending on the student. Counseling sessions typically, last for about 45-60 minutes once or twice a week during the school year.

Awareness was a big theme surrounding the fair, but what was really apparent was the amount of support that Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has to offer. Keeping students and staff safe and happy was an important aspect of the fair.

SNHU is a strong community built on the foundation that everyone really cares about the wellbeing of everyone involved on campus. Whether they are full-time students, commuter students, or faculty, everyone’s health is important. Don’t be afraid to contact the Wellness center with any issue that needs to be addressed. They are here to help.

The Wellness Center can be found behind the Student Center; their office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can also be contacted by email at well-ness@snhu.edu or by phone at (603) 645-9679 or (603) 645-9616.
