    Succeeding in the college environment involves more than just one singular trait or skill set. Preparing for academic success is about more than attending class or writing papers. How we care for our bodies and minds can also influence achievement, or lack thereof, in school and work pursuits.

    In this module, we explore a variety of factors every individual should consider pertaining to personal health and well-being. We begin by taking a look at ways to promote physical health and well-being, including how to make positive choices regarding food and substances. Next, we present a variety of tools and strategies to protect yourself while on campus or while you’re out and about, through methods of maintaining personal safety. Your learning investigation also includes taking a look at ways to ask for help—something many people struggle with in today’s society.

    Through exploring perspectives and skills related to health, safety, and overall well-being, you will gain valuable insight as you prepare for success in your academic path.
