Doing well in college isn’t just about doing well in class. Even if you’re topping the honor roll, if you’re skipping out on working out or hanging out, then you’re missing out. Rutgers University is huge on the wellbeing of all of its students. This is why we’ve created the RUwell!
RUwell is designed to provide students with tips, health hacks and campus resources that will keep their mind, body, and spirit fully boosted and ready for success. With seven ambassadors, each repping a different dimension of wellness, we’re putting wellness on top of the schedule.
