Coming soon!

The Wellness Commons, a student-centric project.


There is a clear and direct relationship between well-being and learning. The new Wellness Commons will enhance existing programs and services for students’ success, as well as make them more readily available. Providing you with the skills, tools, and practices to cultivate flourishing will result in a thriving experience here at Sewanee. Our hope is that you will learn how to apply these strengths to academic challenges, develop positive relations with others, be open to diverse perspectives, and recognize that diversity can enrich your perspective.

Focusing on student health and well-being, the University Wellness Commons will house the University Wellness Center, a fitness facility and accompanying programs, the Sewanee Outing Program, and a smaller store for publications and other grab-and-go items.

 

What will I find at the Wellness Commons?
