Wellness Week invites students to participate, from front hosted various activities to help students enjoy their time there and to encourage healthy habits, such as a parfait station, reusable grocery bags, and wellnessrelated prizes. “How the Health Are You?” also showed other local wellness-related businesses and services such as Dial Help, local masseuses, and the Health Department. Since this year’s Week of Wellness happened to coincide with Valentine’s Day, Counseling and Wellness and KISS (Keep It Safer, Sweetheart) worked with Film Board to hold a free showing of “She’s Out of My League”, a romance comedy

starring Jay Baruchel, Alice Eve and T.J. Miller. This is the third time that Counseling and Wellness has worked directly with Film Board, and the first time that they have done so for Week of Wellness. So far these events have received positive and constructive feedback. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these events. Coordinator of Student Health and Wellness, Michelle Bangan, said that she would like students to “come out, try something new, get active, and experience what Michigan Tech has to offer.” Bangan cited that exploring student groups and

other activities highlighted through Week of Wellness has led students to take up those activities long-term. Each year, students who attend these wellness events receive a survey with which to give suggestions and feedback about the events, but students can also contact the Counseling and Wellness Center at with questions or feedback. Bangan also said that she would like to thank the other groups involved with the Week of Wellness, saying that she “couldn’t do it without the other student organizations and individuals hosting events.”
