Students from WSU and Southeast Technical College are encouraged to attend. All programs are held in the Integrated Wellness Complex Room 138 on Wednesdays at 3pm.

Order-In Programs

The Health Promotion Order-In Programs are coordinated and conducted by a team expert faculty, staff and/or student leaders from the areas of Health, Counseling & Wellness Services. Order In Programs are a great easy way to present important health topics to your organization, club or living community. These are not your run of the mill programs like lectures, but instead are face paced interactive presentations on a wide variety of health topics focusing on prevention, awareness and skill building to help each participant reach their highest potential wellness.
