 Campus Wellness launches the 8 Dimensions of Wellness 

  • Environmental: The recognition of interdependence with nature.
  • Emotional: The awareness and acceptance of feelings and emotions.
  • Intellectual: The openness to new concepts and ideas.
  • Physical: Maintenance of a healthy body through good nutrition, regular exercise, and avoidance of harmful habits.
  • Social: The ability to perform social roles effectively, comfortably, and without harming others.
  • Spiritual: The meaning and purpose of human existence
  • Occupational: The ability to enjoy a chosen career and/or contribute to society through volunteer activities. 
  • Financial: It is not necessarily about being wealthy, but it is a state of psychological well being in which one feels they have control over their current finances and financial future. 

Did you know there are 8 Dimensions of Wellness?  People equate exercise, working out and good nutrition as wellness, but that just scratches the surface of the physical dimension, which is only one of eight.  

“Physical wellness is easily identifiable in today’s society and with college students,” said Georgia Childs, associate director of ECU’s Office of Campus Wellness.  “After that, most folks might recognize emotional and social wellness as having impacts on their lives.”  (Read More)

Fletcher Hall Major Renovations

Fletcher Residence, in ECU’s West End Neighborhood, has undergone significant renovations to the student centric space located in the bottom level of the hall.  The building opened in 1963 and was named after Inglis Fletcher, a writer of historical novels who resided in Edenton, NC. She was at the dedication of the building, which drew such a crowd due to her notoriety that ceremony was held in the football stadium. When it first opened, Fletcher Hall was the tallest building in Greenville and was often referred to as the “skyscraper dorm” by locals. It was originally built to be a women’s residence hall but has been co-ed for many years.  (See Before and After Photos)
