Welcome to Wellness Week

Second semester is winding down, which means that summer break isn't far away, but those exams are coming up soon. We know this year has been stressful, which is why we, along with several university partners, are bringing you Wellness Week.

Our goal is to provide you with a few opportunities to de-stress, kick back and have some fun before exams. Check out our event lineup below for all things Wellness Week. We hope to see you there!

It also means Wellness Wishes! Some lucky Badgers will have their wishes from first semester granted. Check out last year's recap video above.
