The professional nurses and counselors that provide DelVal's health and wellness services have dedicated their careers to serving campus communities. That makes a difference when it comes to helping students successfully manage new responsibilities and the stresses that go with them.

For most students, the move to college marks the beginning of full, conscious participation in their own health, nutrition and fitness -- ready or not. In fact, few of us are truly prepared, which is why, much more than simply responding when things go wrong, we do our best to nurture our students' ability to manage stress, balance work and play, make positive choices and, when necessary, understand and navigate the health care system.

We take seriously our role in promoting the physical and mental well-being that underpins academic and extra-curricular achievement.
