The science of learning tells us that academics and wellness are not mutually exclusive, but rather integral and interrelated parts of success in college. Learning is optimal when stress is minimal. As such, we are committed to providing students at F&M a holistic system of academic and wellness support in an effort to deconstruct educational, personal, and social challenges and co-construct positive, productive, and healthy habits.
Anytime, day or night, students can rest assured that there are trained, licensed professionals available and ready to support them when needed.
