Academic Communities - Health & Wellness Connection


The Health & Wellness Connection:

Academic Communities bring together often-isolated elements of the student experience. Students can make connections between formal academic experiences and other opportunities for learning, which allows them to relate academic study to life interests and goals.

The Health and Wellness Connection unites people wishing to meet others who share similar interests in personal and community health. If you're considering a career in nursing, physical therapy, athletic sports training, or lab technology, then this group is for you.

For more information, contact Chris Henyon at or Mary Kemp at  For Health and Exercise Science curriculum information contact Sharon Brunner at .

Enroll in the Health and Wellness Connection Blackboard site to receive announcements of meetings.  For more information go to and check out the Communities tab.

Fall 2010 First Year Interest Groups (FIG)

Popular course combinations give you the smart advantage on your career path:

A FIG provides a connection to learning in three courses focused on a common career theme. Students sign up for all three courses and can round out a full-time schedule by selecting courses from college catalog to fulfill General Education requirements.  Students will have the opportunity to interact and study with the same group of students in these three classes, and have the benefit of three or more faculty members working together to guide successful learning.
