Wellness

The TSTC Student Wellness Program, coordinated by the Office of Student Life is designed to help students lead balanced, healthy lifestyles, At TSTC, we view wellness as "holistic," so we developed a program comprised of six dimensions, all of which encourage students to make positive steps toward wellness.

Social

The Student Life Department encourages student involvement through participation in student activities, community service, membership in campus organizations and leadership development. Student Life organizes social events throughout the academic year:

  • Oktoberfest
  • Techsan Day
  • Movies on the Lawn
  • Think Pink Party
  • WelcomeWeek
  • Open Mic Nights
  • Valentines in Vegas Bash
  • Guys Night Out

Intellectual

TSTC Student Development seeks to enhance students’ abilities to use higher order thinking skills to make informed decisions. Workshops on a diverse array of topics are offered year-round for students to attend free of charge. Examples of topics are:

  • Safety Tips on Campus and at Home
  • Solutions to Conflict
  • Wellness: Committing to Fitness
  • Nutrition: You Are What You Eat
