Supporting the Whole You: Mind, Body, and Spirit
At Saint Leo University, we believe a whole student is a happy student. That is why we have organized a list of wellness support services that enable you to be at your best physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. These services are available to all of our students—whether you are online or on campus—and we also have additional support services specific to your student type.
One of our most exciting projects worth noting is the unveiling of our new 59,000-square-foot Wellness Center set for fall 2021. Among its many features, the Center includes an infinity pool, a multipurpose gymnasium, fitness area, Counseling and Prevention services, yoga studio, and much more!
