Embrace Your Best Self
Our wellbeing efforts engage the PSU community in various health promotion events and programs throughout the year. We strive to create a culture of wellbeing within our department, which is guided by the concept of the wellbeing wheel (pictured below). We believe holistic wellbeing is best achieved when a person attends to many different aspects of their health. Our programs and practices address various dimensions of wellbeing and aim to help participants discover how they can be their best selves.
While components of wellbeing may differ from person to person, wellbeing is in general a state of happiness, health, and fulfillment that allows one to realize their full potential and engage meaningfully in life. It is multi-dimensional, involves the whole self, and is more than just physical and mental health or the absence of disease. Optimal wellbeing goes beyond the individual and recognizes the importance of community and contributing purposefully to the greater good.

Campus Rec strives to support eight dimensions of wellbeing through our facilities, programs, and services: physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual wellbeing. While these eight dimensions can be difficult to balance, Campus Rec believes participation in recreation programs can inspire and empower individuals to take action in ways that enhance holistic wellbeing.
The new PSU Campus Well website, brought to you by The Center for Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) and Campus Rec (CREC), covers a wide variety of college health and wellbeing topics. Each week, PSU students receive an e-mail with the latest topics and featured articles.
