After learning about ways to prioritize self-care and overall wellness, attendees will participate in a networking mixer on a patio with downtown views, enjoy light bites, and go on tours of UHD’s new Wellness and Success Center.

We especially encourage alumni who were enrolled between 2019-2021 to join us—you may be eligible for a FREE alumni membership if you paid student fees during the construction of the new Wellness & Success Center!
