Look forward to speakers, workshops & de-stressers throughout the week!


An exciting upcoming event to keep on your radar is Wellness Education Week from Monday, April 19th to Friday, April 23rd! The goal of Wellness Education Week is to bring the community together around promoting health and wellness practices and building community on-campus (especially with the beautiful Spring weather!). Wellness is a holistic component of health, and wellness practices support all parts of health, including mental, spiritual, and physical health. Two off-campus speakers will join us to discuss various topics relating to wellness with a focus on mental health. The Health & Wellness Center Advisory Board (HCAB) is also planning various activities and asynchronous activities for the community to participate in. This will be a wonderful event and we are so grateful for the collaboration and support of the Health & Wellness Center, President’s Office, Dean’s Office, and Pensby Office!

Support Space Georgia Shooting

Tragedy in Atlanta that resulted in painful loss, anger, and fear speaks to the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes that increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are devastated and hurt and understand that the coming days will be difficult, for some more than others. Here is a space for those who may need it.

AuraTracker for COVID-19 Testing!

Message from Beth Kotarski, DNP, CRNP, BMC Medical Services Director:

Thank you for continuing to make your COVID-19 testing a priority. Our testing company, GenetWorx, is now performing the anterior nasal swabs (similar to the tests conducted in the fall) and this should provide a more comfortable testing experience going forward.

Genetworx did ask that, if you haven’t done so already and if it is possible for you, please download the free Aura app prior to your next testing appointment. You can find the app in the Apple App Store or in Google Play (see for links). Having the app ready when you come in for testing will vastly improve the flow and speed of your testing experience.

Thank you in advance for all that you are doing to keep yourself and the campus safe.
