One of the vendors discusses wellness with a participating student.

Baldwin Wallace University’s Wellfest was held on Friday, Sept. 15, hosting over 30 vendors in the Lou Higgins Recreation Center to address the six dimensions of wellness.

The six dimensions of wellness are the six largest contributing factors to a person’s overall well-being and include physical, emotional, occupational, spiritual, social and intellectual wellness.

Every vendor was marked with labels telling students and staff which specific dimension of wellness they were promoting, and almost every vendor had multiple dimensions listed.

Many vendors promoted v ar i ous d i me ns i ons of wellness, including the BW Career Center with occupational wellness, the Southwest General Hospitals Behavioral Health Services with emotional health, the BW Office of Spiritual Life with spiritual health and the Cuyahoga Problem Gambling Coalition with social health.

The Outdoor Adventure Program also attended, promoting intellectual health and offering classes such as archery, rafting, camping and general survival skills.

Wendy Hyde, a certified wellness practitioner and assistant professor at BW, promoted the Wellfest. Hyde said that it is a great opportunity for students to learn about ways to improve their overall well-being and to have access to various resources to do so.

Hyde said that the overarching goal of Well Fest is to create a culture of health and well-being in the BW community.

These goals and mission of Well Fest did not go unnoticed. Corrine Dimond, a representative from Prudential Insurance, one of the vendors at the event, said that the dimensions of wellness have become ever more important.

“I think it’s amazing that they do all of this, especially after COVID-19, many people have been struggling with mental health,” Dimond said.
