The Health, Wellness and You Learning Community is for first-year students who are entering health professions. Through this learning community, you’ll become a researcher on your own health patterns and learn strategies for improving your self-care. You’ll be involved in cutting edge research with health and wellness experts. You’ll also contribute to designing important programs that will make our campus healthier for future Falcons.

Health, Wellness and You Residential Community home

Coming Fall 2018

Location | Kreischer Darrow
Fee | $200 + Residential Fees

All First-year Students who are entering health professions can join this community but starting in the fall of 2018, Health, Wellness and You Learning Community will transition to a Residential Learning Community. The change offers BGSU health and wellness undergraduate students not only the opportunity to learn and research together, but live the experience together too!

How to Apply

Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:

Step 1
Complete your housing application
Step 2 Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password
Step 3 Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term
Please Note Students can only apply for two communities on there own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.

After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl hall.
