Be “skin smart” with free sunscreen now available on campus- May 1, 2024

May, Skin Cancer Awareness Month, is a time to educate about the dangers of skin cancer and simple ways to protect your skin. Using sunscreen protects your skin from UV rays and potentially deadly skin cancers. UHW is proud to pilot a new Skin Smart initiative, offering free sunscreen at select campus locations.

Look for touch-free dispensers and apply SPF 30 sunscreen at the Varsity Tennis Courts and Spartan Greens. Say yes to skin protection!

Togetherall Peer-to-Peer- April 8, 2024

Whether students are feeling overwhelmed due to academic, social, or personal pressures or just need to connect, Togetherall is available 24/7 to remind them they are not alone. This free, anonymous, peer-to-peer mental health support community is monitored and moderated 24/7 by licensed clinicians and empowers students to give and receive support for a full range of concerns.

Many students do not seek campus in-person/virtual mental health treatment. Togetherall provides an alternative option for students seeking mental health support, offering an additional resource for students who are looking for an outlet to share and process their emotions.
