Your time at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) isn't just about your work in the classroom, it's also about wellness.
"Learning to live well and thriving is an important part of your college education," according to Dr. Dan Shipp, UNO Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
Read on below for information from Shipp about how UNO is helping students succeed in all areas of wellness. This information first appeared in The Bullseye, a publication of the Division of Student Affairs.

"Get Your Thrive On"
Learning to live well and thriving is an important part of your college education.
Think about all that you are learning inside and outside of the classroom.
You’re trying to find a balance between academic, work and personal time commitments, all while attempting to develop and maintain personal and professional relationships; get enough sleep; explore new cultures and faiths; manage your emotions; make safe choices and help others do the same; engage in campus and community programs and projects; eat healthy (or at least a little more healthy); learn to live a more sustainable life; find time to exercise; read a newspaper, blog, or book to stay connected; limit time spent on Facebook and Twitter (this one might need a little more attention); and find time for friends and family.
As you think about what it means to live well and thrive over the next few months, remember that UNO has developed a wide variety of programs and services to help you reach your goals and support your success. As you decide how to go about “getting your thrive on” this semester, consider utilizing these important campus services and programs:
