We promote societal, community, relationship, and individual wellness through a variety of events and presentations related to holistic wellness.

The LiveWell office offers educational presentations to classes, student organizations and other groups on a variety of wellness topics.  The office also serves as the host of the “Don’t Cancel Class” series of presentations for academic instructors who would like to request a presentation when they must miss a class.   To request an educational presentation, you may contact the LiveWell Office at (843) 349-4031, click the program request link on the left, or come by the LiveWell Office in the Lib Jackson Student Union, Room B202.


The Don't Cancel Class Program Spring 2018:

The LiveWell Office will offer “Don’t Cancel Class” during the Spring 2018 semester along with some new and returning campus partners. If you know in advance that you will be missing a class, it is preferred that you call in advance and schedule a presentation on the topic of your choice.  This will help all of our students take advantage of every possible educational moment to develop not only intellectually, but emotionally and behaviorally as well. If you need to cancel a class, you or your administrative specialists are asked to call the name listed beside your chosen session.

When scheduling a “Don’t Cancel Class” program, please don’t mention to your students that you won’t be in class that day since this often leads to students skipping class.  We will be happy to take attendance during the class.

This semester we will be highlighting the following programs:
