University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Summer Session Info
Gear up for summer with information regarding summer session schedules, important deadlines and stay current with COVID-19 updates that may affect the schedule.

Tell Us What You Think...
Were you able to attend any of the events hosted by Student Health & Wellness? Maybe you studied at a Haumana Hou session, or got creative at one of the Relaxation Stations? Did you take advantage of Counseling Services or gain information thanks to an outreach interaction? Now's your chance to tell us what you liked, or didn't and how we can make your experiences better in the future.

Take A Hike (Or A Swim)!
Here, in Hawaii, we have the chance to be outdoors most of the year. Yet, most of us get too busy with work and school to take advantage of the calming natural environment we call home. Remember to take a moment to enjoy nature with all five senses. You'll feel relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to take on another day!

Student Care Packages
The Counselors in UH Hilo Counseling Services along with the folks from Campus Center have put together fun care packages for students to help you make the most of your time and practice healthy coping during the COVID-19 situation. Contact them at uhhcouns@hawaii.edu or (808) 932-7465 to reserve your package and get creative!

We Are Listening
In the Spring of 2019, the Nā Kia’i O Ke Ola, Guardians of Life, Suicide Prevention Program conducted student wide focus groups. The purpose was to gather information to learn about current needs and how to best support mental health and well-being while at UH Hilo. We've already put your thoughts into action and continue to make changes to our programming to better suit your needs. Keep talking!

Tell Us How You Are Doing.
Dr. Pacheco, of the KES department, would like to know how your level of physical activity has been affected due to the current covid-19 pandemic and stay at home orders. This survey is completely anonymous and voluntary. Your feedback, as always, is much appreciated!

Student Health & Wellness welcomes your ideas for upcoming Newsletter topics. Drop a line to shwp@hawaii.edu and let us know what you'd like more information on.
