RES LIFE

Healthy Halls
A growing number of campuses show
that not only is living well the best
revenge, but it's also a strong foundation
for a living-learning community.

The American College Health
Association's Spring 2017 National
College Health Assessment found that
61 percent of students would like to
receive more information about physical activity from their institutions, 65
percent want to know more about nutrition, and 73 percent are interested in
gaining more knowledge about stress
reduction. Higher education institutions are noting students' increasing
pursuit of health and wellness, offering a variety of options to help them
in their journey, and supporting the
cultivation of a skillset that leads to a
lifetime of wellness. In doing so, many
housing departments are aligning
with their institution's goals to create a
healthy and well student population.

"The universal goal across these
programs is to support students'
pursuit of health and wellness."

Stereotypes about the college student
lifestyle would lead folks to assume
that students spend all of their time
lounging on couches binging Netflix
(and who knows what else), playing
video games, staying up late, cramming for exams, and, of course, gaining the Freshman Fifteen. The reality,
though, is that a number of students
are making intentional choices to
pursue health and wellness in addition
to their degrees.

Based on ACUHO-I'S 2017-2018
Campus Housing Index, 37 percent
of participants who answered the
question said that programming
that supports overall health is a high
priority for their housing department.
This priority is manifesting itself in
living-learning communities (LLCs)
focused on health, which are popping
up across the country in a variety of
formats. Some of these programs,
such as Healthy U at the University of
Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, are based
on the traditional LLC model while
others utilize themed communities
or specialized programs. Whatever
the strategy employed by the housing
department, the universal goal across
these programs is to support students' pursuit of health and wellness.
This mission is summed up nicely

Resident Educational Services
Develop program goals for residential learning communities and
academic partnerships to support programmatic goals.
