Thrive: A Comprehensive Approach to Wellbeing

Free Food, Priceless Knowledge AND PUPPIES.

The campus-wide kick-off of “Thrive: A Comprehensive Approach to Wellbeing” for all WFU faculty, staff, and students will feature a festival designed to inform and inspire the campus community to think differently about their personal approach to wellbeing.

Light-hearted activities involving puppies, a labyrinth, and hundreds of three-foot tall leaves will help the campus community consider serious topics such as financial planning, work satisfaction, intellectual engagement and spirituality. At the center of the event, a 90-foot long, three-dimensional, leaf-shaped installation will represent Wake Forest’s holistic approach to wellbeing.

“We want faculty, staff and students to thrive in all aspects of their lives,” said Vice President for Campus Life Penny Rue. “With fun and engaging activities, we hope to share important resources and engage people in building a broader understanding of the various aspects of wellbeing.”

Activities will cover eight dimensions of wellbeing: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual.
