The college experience is a time of personal growth and change; this can be both exhilarating and challenging. Sometimes, these challenges can be stressful and interfere with your academic, social, or emotional adjustment to college. If this seems to be happening to you, come and see us at the Center for Health and Counseling Services. We can help you get back on track in a safe, caring, and confidential setting.

The more you know about alcohol, the better equipped you are to make healthy choices.

Wellness Is Now Peer Education

The Wellness Is Now (WIN) Peer Education program is an ever-growing and developing segment of the Center for Health and Counseling Services. WIN works to provide the education and resources needed to introduce each student to the different levels and components of Wellness. By increasing the awareness and importance of Wellness within the Ramapo College community, students will be better able to define their personal “health and wellness” and work at developing their constant and continual growth.

Our programs will focus on any combination of slices on this Wellness Wheel:

The late Head Coach of UCLA’s basketball team and ten-time NCAA national championship victor, John Wooden, created the “Pyramid of Success” in order to inspire his players. WIN Peer Educators aim to inspire college students the same way Wooden did while utilizing his “Pyramid of Success”. Click on the image below to enlarge it.

Our office is located at the beginning of second-floor E-wing, E-211A.
