Live Life in Balance

The Wood Wellness Village, located within Wood Hall, is an exciting residential Living and Learning Village open to all students committed to living a balanced life. This includes quality sleep, healthy relationships, service learning, balanced diet, regular exercise, awareness of environmental impacts and much more. We are centrally located for easy access to Talley Student Union, University Recreation, Student Health Center, Student Cinema, on-campus dining and multiple athletic venues.

As a member of the Village you will enhance your knowledge and self-awareness of personal wellness, the foundation to achieve success at NC State and beyond. The community is developed and nurtured through interactive programming, personal engagement and interaction with students, faculty and staff members. Engaging, fun team building programs, such as whitewater rafting, volunteering and meditation, coupled with exclusive Village events and the support of a Village mentor will help you discover your balance. 

As a member of the Village, you are required to enroll in HESS 295 in the fall, a two-credit course. The class is an experiential learning opportunity to creatively and critically assess and enhance the seven dimensions of wellness through assignments both in and out of the classroom.
