|Wellness Center invites alumni to join|
The Student Wellness Center is extending a membership invitation to members of the UND Alumni Foundation. The opportunity affords UND alumni and friends another way to stay connected to the University family.
The alumni membership will directly support Team Wellness, the Wellness Center’s student employee development program, through professional development and certifications for students. With the support of Team Wellness, students gain invaluable on-the-job experience and on-going training with direct application to lessons and concepts learned in the classroom. Alumni members will discover a healthy and cohesive environment and connect with various students, faculty, staff, and other alumni, all of whom are devoted to “…enhancing the campus climate and enriching the quality of life…by embracing all dimensions of wellness.”
“We truly value our alumni – we can learn a lot from them. To be able to rub shoulders with our alumni is definitely a wealth of untapped opportunity,” said Vanessa Langlie, a Wellness Center employee .
Laurie Betting, associate vice president for wellness, said “The students will benefit the most from this. We define wellness as an ongoing process to reach our full potential as human beings, personally and in relation to our families, our community, and the world around us. It’s the perfect way, and the perfect place, to build bridges and make connections.”
