National Depression Screening Day

New friends, experiences, and freedoms provide an exciting backdrop as you wind your way through mid-terms, social gatherings and all-nighters. Despite all the fun, adjusting to college life can be difficult, leaving you feeling stressed, anxious, disconnected, and alone.

National Depression Screening Day is Thurs Oct 8. More information coming soon!

National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week

Colleges and universities across the nation will unite together to raise awareness of alcohol abuse prevention through National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week. 49% of UCO students report using alcohol within the past 30 days. NCAAW educates students on safe ways to engage in alcohol use, and raises awareness of unhealthy behaviors associated with alcohol and drug use.

NCAAW is Nov. 19-23. Check back soon for the schedule!

Be-Mindful Week

Finals Week may be synonymous with stress, but we've got the remedy for stressed out students: food, massages, and those oh-so-cute puppies in the Library. Join the Wellness Center and the Center for Counseling and Well-Being as we engage in a new kind of finals week designed to encourage mindfulness in our students.

Stay tuned for the week's events!
