Health & Wellness
College is a new and exciting experience for young adults. Throughout your four years we hope you will grow and mature into a well rounded individual. During your time here you will meet new and different people, make new friends and join in a variety of extra curricular or work opportunities. Along the way you will have challenges and successes, both of which will make you a stronger person. Stonehill thrives on educating the entire person, the whole being, mind, body and spirit.
At the Office of Health and Wellness we offer information on how to live a healthy lifestyle and encourage making positive behavior choices. We believe in promoting the health and wellbeing of students through prevention of illness, injury and disease and through raising awareness of issues affecting the students mind, body and spirit.
