Blogs share the story of wellness

No matter the subject, students seek resources to help them make informed decisions –that’s why several departments in Student Affairs have taken to blogging. The online platform easily allows departments to share personal stories, tips and tricks directly with Nebraska students.

The blog topics vary, but together the stories promote a campus-wide culture grounded in a multi-dimensional model of wellness.
