The Counseling Center sponsors many different events throughout the course of the academic year. We collaborate with a variety of campus partners to create engaging events to support you and promote wellness on our campus.
All Sizes Fit
All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." It embraces the Health at Every Size philosophy which focuses on healthy eating and daily activity instead of weight loss. Instead of dieting or focusing on a specific weight, we encourage: regular activity that is enjoyable, stress management, and healthy emotional awareness and coping.
Academics can be stressful for many of us, especially toward the end of the term. Stress Less is designed to create opportunities for you to explore different ways to practice self-care and find techniques to de-stress during some of the hardest parts of the year. These events are hosted during week 10 of fall, winter, and spring terms. Everyone manages the stress of classes differently, but we are here to support you through those times.
Join us for Be Well Wednesdays—a weekly interactive workshop. Learn to identify and reduce your own stress through relaxation and stress management techniques. No sign-up required, all students are welcome to drop-in.

If you’re the first person in your family to attend college, navigating university life and the demands it brings can feel overwhelming. You are not alone – many first generation college students struggle with deciphering a system that is often foreign to their family and often their community. This workshop will address the challenges that you might face as a first generation college student, provide you with helpful tools and a roadmap for navigating college successfully, and equip you with valuable campus resources to support you along the way.
As a student of color, you may find yourself in an environment with more or less racial and cultural diversity than what you experienced in your home community. This often causes students to feel isolated and disconnected. If this is you, you are not alone! This workshop will address potential barriers and challenges that you may face as a student of color on campus, provide you with strategies to overcome them, and highlight campus resources to support your academic journey.
Slow down and shift gears with a yoga sequence designed to remedy muscular aches and stresses common to bikers. Prior to yoga, you may join us at 5:30 p.m. for a laid-back ride focused on anatomy and riding consciously. Afterwards, a UO Rec Center Instructor will lead the tranquil yoga session. Participate in one or both parts of this event. All biking and yoga levels are encouraged to attend! Sign up online.
