Frequently asked questions about Peavine Hall

  • Do I have to participate in the wellness challenge if I live in Peavine Hall?

    Yes, Peavine Hall is reserved for students wanting to focus on wellness, so it is a community expectation that all residents participate in creating their own wellness goals and plan

  • How does the wellness challenge process work?

    During opening floor meetings, you will be introduced to the 7 dimensions of wellness and determine your personal wellness challenge.

    During the first two weeks of the fall semester, you will sign up for a group meeting with a student staff member and several other members of your community. This small group will become your wellness team.

    You will meet with your wellness team periodically throughout the academic year to set and review your personal goals. Your wellness team is there for you to challenge and support each other in your progress towards personal wellness.

  • Who checks on my challenge?

    Professional and student staff will work with you throughout the year helping you to achieve your wellness goals.

  • What if I don't achieve all of the goals of my wellness challenge?

    We hope that students challenge themselves enough that they may not be able to meet all the terms of their self-challenge. The wellness challenge is a commitment to trying to better oneself. The hall staff and your wellness team will support and challenge your growth and encourage you to set new goals regularly.

  • Are there required programs to attend?

    Monthly community meetings are required in all our halls, but there are no specific wellness programs that require attendance. However, we hope that you will take advantage of many of the programs and activities that will be available to you in the hall.

  • Is this a substance-free hall?

    No, but the campus is a voluntary tobacco-free campus, and students must all be 21 or older to drink in a room, which makes all of our first-year-buildings mostly substance free (there are very few first-year students who are 21).
