Summer Wellness Series

Summer Wellness Series: Monday, June 27th - Friday, July 1st

Let's kick off the summer right with a summer wellness series featuring a series of wellness workshops focusing on summer safety and stress reduction, an activity challenge, and a scavenger hunt! 

Monday, June 27th, 10:15 - 11:15 a.m.: Join us as we kick off the series with a tabling in Quarry Plaza. We'll be handing out summer wellness kits, water bottle stickers, and reusable water bottles for those that need them. You'll have the opportunity to get a little teaser of what's to come in the workshop series, so be sure to stop by between 10:15 and 11:15 a.m. and bring your reusable water bottle if you have one! Small snacks will be provided. 

Tuesday, June 28th, 12 - 1 p.m.: Summer Safety: Beat the Heat wellness workshop. You'll learn about specific summer health concerns such as sun exposure, insect protection, and outdoor food safety for all your summer picnics! Sign up here

Wednesday, June 29th, 12 - 1 p.m.: Hydration wellness workshop. Fill up on important information regarding how much water you should be drinking and how to maintain hydration. Sign up here.

Thursday, June 30th, 12 - 1 p.m.: Mindful Living wellness workshop. Learn about how you can practice mindfulness through breathing, eating, walking, and other daily activities. Sign up here

Friday, July 1st: Let's kick off the Marathon in a Month Challenge! Pair up or team up for motivation, or go at it on your own! Log 1.3 miles a day, five days a week, for four weeks to get to a full marathon! More information on the challenge (and prizes!) can be found on our Marathon in a Month page.

Lastly, be sure to enter our Healthy Beverage Initiative scavenger hunt and selfie challenge! The Faculty & Staff Wellness Program has installed four new full hydration stations and five new gooseneck water bottle fillers on campus as part of the UCSC Healthy Beverage Initiative, and we want you to find them! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take a selfie next to the new stations. Send them to, or upload them on Instagram and tag #slugslovewater. You'll have the full duration of the Marathon in a Month challenge to get your selfies entered to win a prize! Selfies with any water station will be counted as one entry; selfies with the new water stations count as two entries! Not on campus? Take a selfie with your reusable water bottle to be entered into the challenge! 

We hope you'll join us in our summer wellness series extravaganza. Let's kick off the summer right in a healthy and fun way! If you have any questions, please reach out to Jessica Bulleri, Campus Wellness Program Manager, at Let the summer fun begin!
