A student’s success is dependent on a variety of factors including their health and well-being. UA provides many resources to support a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle.

Health Hut

The Health Hut helps promote healthy living to all students. They also help sponsor awareness throughout campus with organizations such as Project Wellness. You can usually find a booth set up in various locations around campus to help promote different aspects to healthy living, such as the safe use of alcohol, or just healthier eating choices. But don’t worry, these aren’t just boring lectures! Student and faculty will find a fun interactive way to teach you on these topics. For more information on what the Health Hut offers, you can find them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
