Wellness Program

The Nena Amundson Lifetime Wellness Program at Luther College promotes a wellness-supporting environment on campus. It offers individual and group health education. The program also provides services, resources, and initiatives to students and employees.

An estate gift by the late Nena Amundson ’56 makes these wellness opportunities possible. Amundson taught physical education and coached women’s athletics, primarily at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
