Staying healthy as the semester winds down

Staying healthy as the semester winds down


We understand that, as the semester winds down and the holidays quickly approach, many students feel additional pressure, stress and anxiety. We want you to know that you are a part of a caring community and support is available.

Whether it’s emotional and psychological support, academic help or activities to stay well physically, we encourage you to get connected, feel connected and stay connected.

Get connected with mental and physical health resources
Counseling & Psychological Services in the Wellness Center provides quality, confidential counseling to students. Students wishing to meet with a counselor should contact the Wellness Center at 856-256-4333. After hours, students in crisis should call 856-256-4911 and ask to speak to the counselor on call. Crisis counseling is available 24/7.

Additionally, free, private access to teletherapy and mental health crisis support is available through Uwill. Open to all students, Uwill allows you to book an appointment in minutes. Students can choose a confidential therapist based on preferences such as focus area, gender, language and ethnicity. Appointments can be on days, evenings and weekends and can be via video, phone, chat or message.

In addition to providing individual counseling, the Wellness Center also offers group therapy. Sessions focus on a wide range of topics, including time management, anxiety, depression, and behavioral therapy. Group sessions and workshops also are offered for specific students, such as first-generation students, those in recovery, students of color, and LGBTQ+ and transgender students, among many others.

We also recognize that reaching out for assistance can be challenging for some. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from the resources and services Rowan has to offer, you can submit a CARES Report on your/their behalf.

For students experiencing illness or injury, Student Health Services in the Wellness Center offers care free of charge. The center also offers sexual and reproductive health services in collaboration with FAMcare.

Feel connected with Campus Recreation
From fitness classes to intramural sports to sport clubs to state-of-the-art health club facilities, the Rec Center provides students opportunities to stay active and healthy and to engage with others. All Rec Center services are free for students who carry three or more credits.
