Healthy Options is housed in Harrington Hall and offers primarily double occupancy rooms. There is space for approximately twenty students on this co-ed floor. Harrington is a building with several lounges, a computer lab, and kitchen facilities.
Healthy Options is an environment based on the wellness concept: attempting to live a balanced, healthy life by focusing the physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social, and vocational dimensions of wellness. To live in this community you must be committed to living a balanced lifestyle and supporting others in their efforts to do so.
One of the special advantages of living on the Healthy Options floor is the numerous programs and activities designed to give residents an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills needed to live a healthy lifestyle. These programs are designed to meet the needs and interests of the community, and may include first aid and CPR training, nutrition and fitness assessments, and stress and time management workshops. Many of these programs will be sponsored by the Resident Assistant, but each resident is encouraged to participate in planning and organizing these programs. Staff from Counseling, Health and Wellness Services, the Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement, the Physical Education Department, and Residential Life are available as resources.
