Looking for ways to meet people on campus? Are you interested in your own well-being as well as that of others? Get involved with Health Promotion and Wellness! The Student Wellness Ambassador Team and the Student Advisory Board are great ways to make a difference on campus.
Student Wellness Ambassador Team
The Student Wellness Ambassador Team (SWAT) is a registered student organization striving to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles. SWAT members are a diverse group of Illinois State student volunteers from all majors and backgrounds. They are trained by Health Promotion and Wellness staff to promote and talk to fellow students about health issues. SWAT members conduct interactive and educational workshops as well as assist with campus and community outreach. SWAT members also staff the G Spot portable wellness gazebo, which is set up around campus to provide important health information and resources. Members attend a weekend retreat and weekly meetings/trainings during the fall and spring semesters to get the latest information on health issues.
SWAT meets every Wednesday throughout the semester at 3 p.m. in 255 McCormick Hall. For more information, visit Wellness.Illinoisstate.edu/Peer-Education-Ambassadors/Peer-Education or contact Jim Almeda.
Student Advisory Board
The Student Advisory Board is a diverse group of students who are looking to have a voice about alcohol and other issues that affect students’ overall well-being. The Student Advisory Board meets once a month on campus, usually in the evening. For more information or to find out when the next Student Advisory Board meeting is, contact Kerri Calvert.
