Welcome to Our Mind Spa!
This is our main lounge area where students often come to hang out, talk with our staff, participate in our daily programming, and just get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of campus!
Our super comfy couches!
The Art Table!
The Art Wall!
We have a different prompt / art piece drawn on our board every week and encourage students to share their creativity and add to it!
The Biofeedback Room!
In this room we have sunlamps (which provide Vitamin D) as well as a software that monitors heart rate. This room also serves as an area for students who sometimes need a quite space to decompress alone.
Come on in!
We often hear that our office seems a bit intimidating from the outside. Although we may appear to be a small hole in the wall, we have a lot of great things to offer inside - just come on in :) Our staff is eager to greet you and show you around!
One of the most common struggles our students face is how to manage the stress and anxiety that comes from trying to balance the various demands of a college student; from classes and work, to navigating family and romantic relationships. While counseling can be very helpful for these concerns, we recognize that most students would benefit from learning a few new ways of managing their stress on their own.
Stop by The Mind Spa, which is in our Outreach & Education Office to learn more! Located at 120 Memorial Union, 1st floor by the ATM. We are open during the Fall & Spring semesters Mondays through Fridays from 11a.m. to 4:30p.m.
We host programming everyday at 3 p.m. (with the exception of our Dream Interpretation Workshops at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays.
