549094_362447903794405_609882679_nWhether you’re coming into first year, or are already well acquainted with McMaster, the Student Wellness Centre (SWC) is a resource you want to take advantage of.

The SWC offers various services and programs in the areas of medical services, counselling, and wellness education, all to help enhance both your academic success and university experience.

The SWC also opened up the Student Wellness Education Lower Lounge (SWELL) in the basement of MUSC (B118) in 2013, which is an inclusive space for individuals to learn about themselves and their health. People are invited to come and relax, grab a cup of tea, read, pick up wellness resources, study, get condoms, and attend wellness programs, such as:

  • Mindfullness Mondays
  • Tele-Tuesdays
  • Wellness Wednesdays
  • Thirs-tea Thursdays
  • Free-Fruit Fridays

Wellness Education Coordinator, Melissa Fernandes, came on the morningfile last week to chat about the services and programs offered, SWELL, the education programming surrounding consent during Welcome Week, and more!

You can listen to the full interview below. For more information on the services available, you can also check out the SWC on their website, or on Facebook and Twitter.
