Mental Health & Wellness
It's easy for your health and wellness to take a backseat to the pressures of graduate school.
Finding time to workout and eat healthy are often difficult to balance with your course load, teaching, research, and family responsibilities.
There are a number of resources to help you adjust to life in graduate school, manage stress, and find a support network on campus that works for you.
Watkins Memorial Health Center, located on campus, provides comprehensive medical care, outreach programs, and pharmacy services
