Health, Wellness and Safety Week
The primary purpose of Health, Wellness and Safety Week is to highlight campus resources available to Appalachian State University students. Two signature events are key components to the week’s programming:
- the university’s annual Walk for Awareness
- the annual Health, Wellness and Safety Festival
Emphasis is placed on appropriate decision-making, as well as how students can be aware of their needs and responsive to the needs of others. Events are designed in recognition that the first six weeks of the semester represent a high-risk season for first-year students in particular. Three areas of emphasis are interpersonal violence and sexual violence, alcohol use and suicide prevention.
