Our vision is to develop educational outreach activities that encourage employees’ personal and professional productivity and physical, mental, social, and holistic well being.

Healthy Dining in the CSU

  • Eating healthy can be hard when you have many different options in front of you. You are faced with questions like, what's the best choice? How do I eat mindfully each day? Join Campus Dietitian, Lexi Cournoyer on Monday, December 5th from 12 pm to 1 pm in CSU 238 for some tips and tricks on how to make healthy meals and nutritious snack choices in the CSU.
  • There will be free samples to try during the presentation so if you plan on coming, please email samantha.zebro@mnsu.edu. See you there!

Intro to Meditation

  • This introduction to meditation presentation will introduce you to at least four different meditation techniques that encourage stress reduction, inner peace, and being present. Come as you are. No expectations. No experience necessary. We will sit in chairs, floor is optional, and practice a guided meditation, counting meditation, Metta (loving-kindness) meditation, and how to use an affirmation in your meditation practice.
  • Each meditation practice will only last a few minutes so you can experiment with each one. This event will be held on Tuesday, December 6th from 12 pm to 1 pm in CSU 253.
  • If you have any questions please contact carly.hopper@mnsu.edu.
