Centennial College Athletics and Recreation added the service offering of Wellness to students for this upcoming year. Wellness is in reference to one's positive and holistic well-being.
What Is Wellness
What is wellness and what can it do for me?
Wellness/Well-being refers to a positive, holistic state of mind and body, embracing the intellectual, physical, mental, environmental, emotional and spiritual self. Student well-being is the overall synergistic effect between these different layers of a student’s identity - working together to achieve both academic success, as well as success outside the walls of the institute.
Leave the Pack Behind:
LTPB is governmend-funded student-led health promotion program that aims to help students aged 18-19 quit smoking. Through peer-led groups, students can participate in various tobacco cessation campaigns and contests throughout the semester and can even win up to $2,500 for quitting smoking altogether. Furthermore, students can register at www.leavethepackbehind.org to acquire free nicotine replacement therapies including nicotine patches and gum.
