Welcome to Wellness Week

Exams are coming up soon, and we know this can be a stressful time of year, which is why we have partnered with Brock's Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre (SWAC) and Brock Recreation to bring you Wellness Week!

This also mean Wellness Wishes are back! Some lucky Badgers will have their wishes granted. Check out last year's recap video above and info below on how to submit a wish.

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