Wellness Defined

At Iona College, we are committed to promoting and enhancing the physical, interpersonal, emotional, and spiritual wellness of our students. Throughout the year a multitude of resources, activities, and programs are offered to assist students in functioning optimally across all dimensions of their lives.

Wellness is an active process that allows people to make positive choices in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It includes a positive approach to life and health that helps to maximize the individual's potential. A personal wellness lifestyle is associated with good physical health, emotional and spiritual stability, improved personal relationships, as well as increased satisfaction and joy.
