Students living in a new dorm at the University of Vermont (UVM) are taking their health to the next level.
UVM’s Wellness Environment, more commonly known as WE, is a new, substance-free dorm that goes beyond just banning drugs and alcohol.
Students who choose to live there must take a class called “Healthy Brains, Healthy Bodies” which teaches students about different things that affect body and brain health. WE students also have access to yoga and meditation, healthy foods, and a free gym membership. They can also consult nutrition and fitness coaches who assist them on their wellness journeys.
