Promoting wellness on campus
from Healthcare Design
In 2011, California State University Northridge in Northridge, California, conducted a survey to evaluate the health of its students and found the two top health concerns affecting academic performance were stress and lack of sleep. While an existing rec center provides an active setting for fitness and student life activities, the wellness center was designed for a more intimate experience where students could go to access such amenities as peer counseling rooms, massage therapy, and nutrition and wellness counseling. Students can even take a nap in specially designed pods located in a relaxation room, complete with low light levels, textured glass walls, and a water feature.
