Health and Wellness Peer Education

Thrive Wellness Week:

Thank you to all of our cosponsors for making the virtual Thrive Wellness Week (TWW) a huge success!  Each year, we host the Thrive Wellness Expo which is a day long event that focuses on all areas of wellness. Due to COVID-19 we had TWW and this took place from October 5th – 9th. The goal of TWW was to connect with TCNJ students, faculty, and staff & provide them with strategies and resources related to overall health and wellness. We will update this page with important data and photos, from TWW, shortly! 

Digital Roscoe: 

We have created a digital coloring sheet of our TCNJ Mascot, Roscoe! This printable PDF, below, is free for all members of our campus community to use Click here: TWW Roscoe

Mission:

The purpose of the Health and Wellness Peer Educators is to promote resiliency and overall health and wellness to the TCNJ campus community. We believe health and wellness to be foundational to the pursuit of knowledge. Our mission is to promote and nurture a community of care supportive of healthy life long personal and relational behaviors. We provide TCNJ students with opportunities for development in all areas of wellness: intellectual, spiritual, financial, emotional, physical, social, and environmental through advocacy, education, services, and programs.
