Wellness has become an essential aspect to improve the quality of life in our society. College serves as an important lifetime foundation and experience for individuals.
Wellness services and programs offered during the college experience can help create healthy lifelong behaviors including eating well, regular exercise, and emotional and spiritual growth.
Wilmington College believes that every person is first and foremost a spiritual being, that the active pursuit of truth is a life-long vocation, and that the development of a strong, personal moral code is equally as important as the development of intellectual skills and knowledge. Spirit, mind and body make up the three components of a person's essential unity. Each of these is a necessary and eternal part of man. Students are encouraged and expected to develop a high degree of self-discipline and personal restraint and an active moral compass for their lives.
Wilmington College envisions and supports a community of students, faculty and staff engaged in regular and ongoing activities and educational programs promoting health, fitness and wellness for the mind, body and Spirit.
Wilmington College Wellness Program seeks to provide the College community of students, faculty and staff wellness programs and associated activities to educate, promote, develop and enhance healthy life choices, behaviors and activities.
