The mission of UWF Wellness Services is to support student success through health education, promoting healthy choices, and encouraging activism.
From large scale annual events like Take Back the Night to monthly outreach programs in the Residence Halls, Wellness Services is active on campus providing health promotion services in the areas of alcohol abuse & misuse prevention, sexual health promotion and sexual assault prevention. Our goal is to help UWF students avoid situations that can negatively impact their academic success and their lives. We do this in many ways and always aim to pair education with fun.
Throughout our site, you will see we offer direct services for students, staff, and faculty including:
We also seek to provide general topic-relevant information and have links to some of the best college health information available on the web.
Additionally, we coordinate the UWF Peer Educators student group along with the student-led Men for Violence Prevention (MVP) group. As you walk around campus, you can often find the Peer Educators out and about on the Love Bug (our golf cart) promoting important information to help their peers be successful.

The Red Zone is the first three months of the Fall Semester. Rates of sexual assault on college campuses are higher during the Red Zone than at any other time during the year.
Join us on Friday, August 29th, at 8:00 PM in the University Commons Great Hall for "Rock Out The Red Zone" to raise awareness of sexual violence on campus and to have some fun at the same time.
Visit the Peer Educators booth to play a matching game and win some free prizes!
If you don't participate in this year's event, you'll be seeing everyone else wearing this year's Rock Out The Red Zone shirts and wishing you had one, too!
