In the fall of 2010, Acadia students voted by way of referendum to contribute $30 dollars annually ($15 per semester) per student to the Student Wellness Fund. The fund was initiated to accommodate the individual needs of students and enhance their overall sense of wellness through various initiatives. The primary initiative for the fund was to partner with the University and create the present Fitness Centre at the Acadia Athletic Complex. While this has promoted great opportunities for students to enhance their physical well-being, the fund is also designed to address a broad spectrum of wellness concerns.
What is wellness?
Wellness incorporates a number of different dimensions, but all contribute to an individual’s overall well-being.
