The First-Year Studies Program is committed to providing opportunities for first year students to be active members of the community. Health and Wellness play a key role in the success of first year students. College students need to learn the importance of taking care of one’s self. A variety of programs are developed to help address the needs of the first year students to maintain a positive, healthy lifestyle. The Student Mentors of the First-Year Studies Program work in conjunction with Marian University’s Wellness committee to provide a variety of programs for first year students.
