If you're looking for coaching, motivation or a bit of interaction while you work out, we offer several types of Wellness Programming. From trainers for our student-athletes to group fitness courses for our whole campus community, our staff is here to make sure your education doesn't end in the classroom.

Student Wellness Challenge


The Student Wellness Challenge is an undergraduate individualized program that encompasses all aspects of wellness. The Challenge runs for each semester's duration. Each participating undergraduate student works to accumulate points based on their involvement in health and wellness-related activities. Activities can include physical activity, sleep, outdoor recreation, lectures, services and more! Points are tracked online for your convenience. Every student that participates is awarded a free prize at the end of the Challenge and can qualify to be in the running for grand prizes. Find our Student Leader Board in the Campus Center Fitness Center.

Peer Health Educators

Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are a diverse group of volunteer UNE students trained to educate their peers about relevant wellness issues in an interactive, fun and nonjudgmental format. A comprehensive training program provided by the Bacchus Network, prepares the PHEs to facilitate creative outreach programs, develop monthly awareness events, and encourage overall wellness, all of which help to foster a healthy campus culture. Some areas targeted by PHEs include substance abuse, nutrition and sleep habits, fitness, stress balance, and healthy relationships and sex.

Candidates must submit an application and participate in an interview. Once selected, Peer Health Educators will undergo a training period (5-10 hours), and commit to at least two semesters at 3 hours per week. Peer Health Educators may also be available for bookings on the request of various departments.
