Students in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science will discover an environment of wellness as they return to campus full-time, beginning February 28. Called an EngWell Takeover, the two-month campaign will spotlight student health and wellness while it transforms spaces inside Beamish-Munro Hall into a unique and interactive wellness retreat.

Messages and activities marked on walls, inside elevators, on floors and windows will encourage students to think about and maintain their well-being. Some of the environmental interventions include an elevator gym with assigned exercise workouts, weekly complimentary beverages, and giant floor memes.

“Mental health and well-being are a concern across post-secondary environments in Canada. We will always support our engineering students by continuing to offer them quality support services and discover new methods of engagement. EngWell Takeover is a prime example of the latter. This unique approach reflects well-being principles in the spaces where they study, socialize, and learn,” says Dean Kevin Deluzio.

The campaign runs from now through the end of April.
