Wellness Programs

During the Fall, Winter, and Spring academic quarters, we offer Wellness Workshops that are FREE for DePaul students, staff, faculty (members and non-members)and community members. Workshops include topics related to all seven dimensions of wellness, including nutrition, workout ideas and goal-setting, running efficiency clinics, mindfulness, and more. In addition, check out our DIY Workshops and our training programs in Self-Defense and CPR/AED. Participants are encouraged to register in advance due to limited space.
