Thrive Week, November 4-9, is a time to focus on the importance of balance and self-care in developing positive mental health that supports success in learning and working.
We invite you to take a moment to do something that gets you active, creative, connected or relaxed – whatever it is you need for balance. All events are free and open to students and staff.
