- Fun fall festivities to try.
Farmers’ Markets, Oktoberfest, and football games provide several opportunities for weekend adventures.

- Take a hike...literally.
Explore locals trails and embrace nature. Hikes help you stay healthy by getting you active as well as reducing stress levels. This leads to better mental and physical health. Locate local trails near you through this website.
- Fall out of your cold.
Got a runny nose, cough, or congestion? School assignments, midterms, work, sports, organizations, volunteering, and internships can cause stress. With lowered immune systems, colds are right around the corner. By using Cold FAid™, you can target all the major cold symptoms using a research based strategy and four over-the-counter medications. The kit has everything you need without going to the pharmacy. Additionally, the Cold FAid™ app helps you manage what medications to take and when. It also tracks your symptoms, records warning signs, and provides direction to the nearest student health or urgent care center.
