New opportunity for Undergraduate Research in Arts and Sciences: October 31 Deadline

Magellan scholars are not eligible to receive support through this program.

Spotlight on Well-being:

Mindfulness and Meditation
Mindfulness has been shown to have many positive effects on both physical and mental processes and is recommended as a treatment for anxiety, depression, panic attacks, chronic pain, eating disorders and sleep disturbances. Visit the new CALM Oasis in the Center for Health and Well-Being, room 215, where all are welcome for meditation, prayer, and reflection. Find free guided meditations here, and consider using a meditation app.

Stress Management Consultations
A trained professional health educator can help identify your current stress levels, identify the stressors you’re encountering and how they manifest physically, work with you to identify strategies that can help you manage your stress, guide you through relaxation and meditation techniques, biofeedback to show immediate results after practicing relaxation techniques, and serve as liaison to additional Student Health Services programs and other campus partners. To schedule an appointment, log into your MyHealthSpace account, call 803-777-8283, or just stop in at the Center for Health and Well-Being between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.

TAO- Therapist Assisted Online
TAO is a seven to nine week interactive web-based program that provides assistance to help overcome anxiety, depression and other common concerns. TAO also offers a self-help option which requires no contact with a mental health professional but provides you with the skills you need at any time, anywhere.
