Could one of these people be you?

  • You finished a project at 2 am because you went out for a friend's birthday. Got 3½ hours sleep before you went to your part-time job as a lifeguard for a 2 hour shift. You have a major assignment due on Monday morning and your Mom wants you to make the 4 hour drive home for your Grandpa's 75th birthday party. You're supposed to work an afternoon shift, too.
  • When you woke up you sneezed 4 times. Each one was loud enough to wake your roommate. You were thrown a bottle of herbal cold pills as you headed to the shower.You are out of Kleenex because the canmate who was supposed to buy toilet paper forgot, but at least there was another kind of tissue. Until now.
  • You know that there's a gym on campus, but you aren't an athlete. What can you do to stay active?

Our wellness team can help

Wellness is the ability to maintain a balance between your physical, mental and spiritual health. When one is out of balance, you may feel overwhelmed.

Lakeland College's wellness team promotes holistic mental, physical and social well-being to help you achieve balance and the best possible quality of life while you're at college and for the rest of your life. Our services are free and confidential.

There's a team of people who can help you out, from the counselor and wellness advisor, to the campus nurse and recreation facilitator.
