For an institution like Utah State University to sustain itself, it must be concerned with the health and wellness of it's students, faculty and staff. The USU Wellness program was established in 2007, and contributes to reducing USU's carbon footprint through outreach efforts promoting local organic food and water, less meat consumption, and walking and biking to enhance health and reduce harmful emissions.
What is Wellness?
Wellness is a positive approach to living - an approach that emphasizes the whole person. It is a dynamic state of health in which an individual moves towards a higher level of functioning by balancing internal and external environments. Wellness encompasses the belief that everything you do, think, feel and believe has an impact on your state of health, and the health of your environment.
