The Relaxation Room

The EWC Counseling Center invites you to use our newly opened Relaxation Room, located in the George N. Collins Student Union Building (S.U.B.). In our efforts to enhance the holistic approach to student development, the Relaxation Room is designed for students to develop and practice the relaxation skills that will enhance their academic productivity and their sense of well-being.

Educational materials are available on physical and emotional topics. Brochures are free and online audio/visual materials are accessible for listening and viewing.

Sessions in the Relaxation Room are limited to 30 minutes including 15 minutes in our large recliner message chair with soft lighting and soothing music.
