Wellness embraces many aspects – physical, mental and emotional. To have abundant lives, people have to be ready in every way to take on the challenges that call to them, to engage with the people they care about and to do good and fulfilling work. College students are at a critical juncture where they first become responsible for caring for themselves. Beacon students are empowered to delve into their needs, to respect them and to find the means to meet them.

Take good care of yourself.
