Get Involved

 

There are many opportunities to get involved in wellness programs, education or advocacy: join a student organization, become a peer educator, serve as an intern or complete a training program. Getting involved in wellness is a great way to meet new people, learn about wellness, enhance your leadership skills and build your resume – among other things. Sun Devils are Well Devils, and Well Devils are involved members of the ASU community.
