Get Involved!

Passionate about wellness? Join a Wellness Center group!

The Wellness Center is the home to three student leadership groups that focus on different topics related to health and wellness. These sponsored student organizations (SSOs) are student run and driven, but staff supported. These groups are a fantastic way to get more involved in these causes and gain experience collaborating with the Wellness Center. Please read more below to see if one of them interests you!

For any inquiries for student employment opportunities, please look for openings on RamblerLink.

 

 

The focus of CHANGE is on gender-based violence (sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking). CHANGE makers are Loyola students who want to help make Loyola a safer place. They meet every other week to create programming around prevention, awareness, and response to gender-based violence. CHANGE will be open to new members in Fall 2018. Please contact the CHANGE staff advisors with any questions.

The Body Project focuses on positive body image. It is an interactive, two session workshop that is designed to challenge the thin ideal and help improve body satisfaction for women. The workshop is set up as a non-judgmental group conversation, where participants have the opportunity to discuss and criticize the thin ideal, and participate in spoken and written exercises. The Body Project workshops are led by trained female student leaders at Loyola who are passionate about promoting positive body image. The workshops are held in 2 two hour sessions a week apart.  The Body Project will recruit for new peer leaders in Spring 2019, but students are always encouraged to sign up to attend a workshop. There are typically two a month in the school year.
