Wellness Program

A collaboration of services and departments on campus provides education, motivation, and guidance to maintain a healthy living environment.

These opportunities are made possible by an estate gift by the late Nena Amundson '56, who taught physical education and coached woman's athletics for more that 40 years, primarily at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
