Gallup, Inc. defines well-being as “the interaction and interdependence between many aspects of life, such as finding fulfillment in daily work interactions, having strong social relationships and access to the resources people need, feeling financially secure, being physically healthy, and taking part in a true community.”

We believe adding emotional well-being to the list of Gallup’s five elements fits well with our community and our mission.

“Our environment promotes activeness, be it physical activity, sustainable initiatives, or group dynamics,” said Chris Wise, assistant vice president for student affairs. “Through that culture our students are aware of the importance of their overall health and wellness. As I more actively work with other health and wellness areas, I hope to increase our impact on students’ well-being.”

Being named the fittest college in America by The Active Times is an honor. This means that we are committed to creating opportunities for students, faculty and staff to increase their sense of well-being in all aspects. The quality of student life is what helped us achieve this recognition.
