The “Magic” of Wellness: Tips for Improving Your GPA

This session will introduce the Wellness Evaluation of Lifestyle used to assess wellness of traditional-aged first-year college students. Gender differences in wellness profiles and academic success will be discussed. Insights from this data may be helpful for students and faculty to develop interventions to improve student health and academic performance.
