The purpose of the Best Life: Health & Wellness Student Directed Learning Community (SDLC) is to promote a balance between mental and physical health within the SDLC and in the larger neighborhood in which the SDLC is located. Community members will promote active and healthy living by using their various talents and passions to ensure we are living our best lives through weekly meetings on various topics, participation in health and wellness activities and supporting campus initiatives. We hope our SDLC will start to transform our campus to one where students take time to promote general well-being and care.
