Welcome to college. Welcome to new friends, new memories, and some of the best years of your life. But wait—that’s not all. Welcome to midterms, late nights, dead weeks, and stress. Fear not fellow Duck—there’s a place you can go to get away, to take a break, and maybe learn something too. A place where you are always invited. Welcome to the Duck Nest.

Nestled on the lower level of Erb Memorial Union, the Duck Nest wellness center can help you develop self-care and life-balance strategies related to stress, nutrition, physical activity, and general wellness. Our center is staffed by Peer Wellness Advocates that understand the challenges facing college students.

Programs include:

  • Meditation and relaxation
  • Yoga
  • Healthy eating on a budget
  • Aromatherapy
  • Therapy dogs
  • Mental well-being workshops
