BWise sponsors this event annually (weather permitting) for students who might be feeling stressed and missing their pets. It is an engaging community experience in which faculty and staff share their furry family members with students. Casual conversation and the unconditional love of pets replace the day-to-day business of college life.
Certified Peer Educators are trained through a comprehensive, intensive twelve-hour course designed to empower members to educate the Yellow Jacket community in making healthy lifestyle choices.
BWise sponsors a number of educational and social events on campus throughout the academic year including Alcohol Awareness Days, Sexual Responsibilities Week, BWise Goes Greek! and Dog Day just to name a few. Members are involved in the development and presentation of wellness topics in University 101 classes, residence halls, and Greek organizations. Information is delivered in a fun, interactive style that is aimed at maximizing awareness and personal safety.
