As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
Emmanuel College recognizes that the wellness of our students and employees is crucial to success in academia and in the workplace. With the goal of promoting a healthy lifestyle and cultivating an environment that supports the wellbeing of our community, the College initiated The Wellness Committee in the Fall of 2018.
Chaired by Director of Health Services Lauren Davis, the committee consists mostly of student representatives, as well as some additional Emmanuel staff and faculty. If you are interested in being a part of this initiative, please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
