Wellness for Life

Southwestern Adventist University, in partnership with CREATION Health, promotes a Whole-Person Wellness philosophy in all areas of the University experience. 

Our goal is for the campus community to develop a better understanding of and positive attitudes toward key wellness principles so that they will leave our campus with the ability to incorporate the wellness principles in their lifestyle and share those principles with their community, family, and workplace. 

What is CREATION Health?

 CREATION Health is a faith-based wellness plan based on eight principles of CREATION Health – Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal Relationships, Outlook, and Nutrition.

Whole Person Wellness: Implementation

The foundational elements of Whole-Person Wellness are implemented across campus in a variety of ways:

  • A freshmen-level required course - UNIV 111: Wellness for Life
  • Implementation of Whole-Person Wellness and CREATION Health principles into curriculum by every academic department 
  • Health Awareness Week & Whole-Person Wellness Assembly
  • Faculty-Student Challenges
  • New equipment and resources on campus, such as an enhanced walking trail
  • Student-led Community Outreach
  • Wellness-focused Small Groups
  • Student Workshops & Seminars

Wellness for Life: In Action

The holidays are so much fun. We get to see family that we haven’t seen in months. There is so much delicious food. There are parties and presents and pretty lights everywhere. And then it is January and it is just winter, without the pretty lights and the creamy fudge.  

For many people, life may seem a bit boring as we turn our focus back to jobs, responsibilities, and school. It can even seem down-right depressing. But there is something we can do about it!

Southwestern Adventist University’s new Whole-Person Wellness program was created for just this reason...
