We've got you covered

Stress is a normal part of life. Check out these opportunities to strengthen your ability to cope. 

Welcome Weekend Wellness

Welcome Weekend is a fun and exciting time for students and families alike! To help you "take it all in," join McDonald Center for Student Well-Being, RecSports, and the Snite Museum of Art to start your weekend mornings by giving yourself a moment to reflect, relax, and recharge at your choice of wellness events - yoga, a run/walk, or a group mindfulness walk. All are welcome - no previous experience is necessary and mats will be provided. See you bright and early at the Snite Museum of Art!

Meet at Snite Museum of Art at 7 am on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Nature Connect

Join McWell on Tuesdays for a new, free, outdoor event: Nature Connect. This event was strategically created to help you unplug and to connect with the beautiful Notre Dame campus. Each week we will focus on a different element of the world surrounding us--you might even leave with a new perspective of your environment.  This event is open to all undergraduate & graduate students, faculty, and staff. In Nature Connect you'll learn and experience mindfulness techniques throughout each session, although no previous mindfulness experience is required. Add it to your calendar for a weekly study break, or bring a friend as an excuse for a restorative get together.

Time: Every Tuesday from 1:00 - 2:00pm. 

Location: Interested individuals should meet at the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being around 12:55pm.
