The Department of Wellness offers the Choices for Living courses, two of which must be completed as part of the General Education Curriculum in order to earn an undergraduate degree. The Choices courses reflect the University’s philosophy that a well-rounded education should serve to enhance the physical and mental well-being of students at SMU.
The Department of Wellness aims to provide leadership and facilities for helping students become more aware of the comprehensive nature of wellness; to identify personal relationships with wellness; to provide techniques to help students respond positively to any imbalances in their lifestyle; to familiarize students with campus wellness facilities, equipment and services; to promote a lifetime of physical fitness; to promote the learning of a lifetime physical activity; and to provide opportunities and promote action in a variety of wellness areas.
