Luther College's student wellness program, the Nena Amundson Lifetime Wellness Program, offers a variety of opportunities to help support Luther students' health and well-being.
Health and Wellness Coaching
Want to improve or maintain your health or wellness? Request an Appointment to meet with one of our staff to develop an individualized strategy that works for you.
You will typically meet 2-5 times to discuss where you are at, develop goals for self-directed lifestyle behavior change, learn skills and discover resources, and follow up on your progress. We often meet with students about:
- Physical activity
- Weight management
- Stress and time management
- Smoking cessation
- Alcohol and marijuana use
- Sexual health
Depending on your goals, an appointment may be scheduled with our health educator, personal trainer, certified dietitian, or a referral may be made to a partner office on campus.
BASICS and CASICS
BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention for College Students) and CASICS (Cannabis Screening & Intervention for College Students) is a program available for free for all students at Luther who want to explore their alcohol or cannabis use. The program is private, cooperative, non-judgmental, and allows the student to think about where alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs fit into their life. Resources and referrals are provided for students who want to make a change in their substance use. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
