Students are encouraged to visit exhibitor displays, participate in activities that promote wellness and learn how wellness can have a positive influence on academics and life.

The expo will be filled with entertainment and more than $4,000 worth of prizes from local business. The day’s activities will include Zumba demonstrations, swing dance lessons, yoga sessions (starting every hour beginning at 1 p.m.), a performance by the Varsity Gentlemen, cooking with Chef Greg, and a chance to venture into a giant labyrinth set up in the Wellness Center. All this and more.

Also, prizes will be awarded to winners of UND’s Pursuit of Wellness program.

UND ‘s Health & Wellness hosted a seven-week wellness program called Pursuit of Wellness for the UND campus community.
