How Healthy is Our Campus?
The Live Well Student Committee uses the National College Health Assessment (NCHA)
to collect data about students' health habits, behaviors and perceptions.
Western understands the benefits of physical activity and to inspire Western students to become more active so that they can be successful in the classroom and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Eating healthy provides your body with the nutrients and energy it needs to function
properly. Nutrients provide the necessary energy to keep your brain active and
ready to learn.
Alcohol, Tobacco, Other Drugs
Western recognizes the link between student success and high-risk drinking and other
drug choices. Personal Alcohol and Other Drug Additions (AODA) counseling services
are available through the Counseling Center.
