Supporting Students’ Health and Wellness, Right on Campus

As a student at Mount Ida College, you’ll learn new things in the classroom and about yourself. You’ll make new friends and maybe find some new interests. Along the way, you’ll probably have a time or two where you’re not feeling well. You’ll also want to learn how to make healthy choices about what you eat, how you take care of your body, and how you spend your free time.
