Wellness Through Events

The Paw Print

Each week the Division of Student Affairs sends out The Paw Print, which will provide you with updates on key areas and events that you can engage in virtually. An archive of each week's announcement will be kept here

Look for the section of this newsletter called Physically Distant, Socially Connected where you will find weekly engagement opportunities to connect to your fellow Wildcats, Chicagoland, and the globe.
 
The division of student affairs is committed to maintaining current connections and establishing new ones as we remain physically apart. Although not in-person, we will continue to offer various programs for the community. You are invited to check your inbox for weekly engagement opportunities, and follow your favorite social media platforms for specific and departmental programs.
 
The Importance of Engaging for Your Wellness

Engaging in stimulating activities outside of the classroom is just as important to support your overall health and wellbeing as attending classes and studying for your exams. Northwestern provides an endless array of engaging events for little or no cost. These opportunities allow for connecting with new people and learning in a way you may not have otherwise.

Every event provides some way to foster an area of your wellbeing whether it’s a movie screening, speaker panel, sporting event, or even Dillo Day! Give yourself the time to enjoy these opportunities. It just may be what sends you on a new path you never could see before.
