Wellness

The Wellness Program at UWC-USA seeks to empower students to make healthy choices through educational activities, programming, and individual counseling. Program components include: personal problem-solving; diet and nutrition; exercise; stress management; sexuality; education about potentially destructive habits such as smoking, alcohol, and drugs; and understanding and maintaining healthy relationships.

Medical Care

Medical services are provided on campus by a registered nurse. A doctor visits campus once a week and is available to see students in his Las Vegas office at other times. Major dental and eye care should be completed before arrival at school, but the school will assist with making appointments locally when needed.

Student Counseling

Two part-time counselors are available to students for a range of needs from time management, stress, cross-cultural understanding, and helping students to manage their relationships, to more serious problems like depression, anxiety, and family problems. The counselors are licensed in New Mexico and are experienced in working with multicultural adolescents and a variety of mental health issues.

Physical Fitness

Students are encouraged to regularly participate in organized physical activity (OPA) as required by the IBand because both individual and group activities are fun! Learn more about athletics.
