October: An Eventful Month

October is an eventful month full of activities sponsored by Health & Wellness. With more than 35 workshops and events, there really is something for everyone. Check some of them out in the Fall 2017 #BeWellUNH guide.


Don’t let the flu sneak up on you!

I wouldn’t be doing my job as the Health & Wellness intern if I didn’t plug the Flu Clinic for students.

Flu Clinic for Students
October 4, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Hamel Rec Center
The cost of the flu shot is covered by your health fee. No appointment necessary; just bring your student ID.

There will be free baked goods to sweeten the incentive for attending!


Health & Wellness is also hosting Sextober, featuring sex-positive events all month. There are too many to list, but you can find all the details here.

This is just some of what’s in store for October. Check the Health & Wellness website, Facebook page and Twitter for more details about the events.

Go to some (or all) of these free events to learn how to be well at UNH. Giveaways and food are always incentives to show up to campus events, but if you attend these, you will learn something, too.
