The Health & Wellness Community is designed for MICA students who seek to explore and practice mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Personal wellness, both mentally and physically is important for the success of an artist.
Through scheduled programming and community participation the well-being of one's self is enhanced. Residents of this community will live and support a substance free lifestyle.
We are very excited to see what programs will result from the collaboration of students and staff in this new community. Examples of programs that could result from this community are weekly yoga classes, healthy cooking classes, meditation groups, hiking trips, and mental health seminars.
Students who participate in the Health & Wellness special interest community will need to commit to the following:
- Each apartment must actively participate in the planning of 1 or more event(s) of their choosing centered around the values of the Health & Wellness community.
- Each student must attend a minimum of 3 Health & Wellness community programs per semester.
- Each student must lead a substance free lifestyle and commit to the standards of the community contract.
