A Message From Student Health
Take Care of You!
It’s important to take care of your Health & Wellness during this time. Below are some tips on keeping yourself on track!
Is it Allergies or COVID-19?
During times of increased stress, some people may self-medicate with substances such as Marijuana to alleviate these feelings. While Marijuana is legal in some states and used for medicinal purposes, Marijuana use comes with real risks that can negatively affect a person’s health and life.

Stay IN - Stay Safe Challenge
Hey Hornet! Let’s stay healthy during this time of sheltering in place. If you aren’t under a doctor’s care, we have put together a quick and easy to follow-at-home workout challenge, Stay In – Stay Fit.
We encourage you to participate at least 3 times a week. Check out our social media stories every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for a free in-home workout. Join us on Wednesday and Saturday to participate in a free virtual workout class led by a certified personal trainer. These workouts do not require any equipment.
If you are permitted, take your workout outside for some fresh air and follow it with a quick walk or jog around your neighborhood. Remember if you are outside please follow all social distancing rules in your area. Don’t forget to post your workout selfie and use #DSUWellRecAtHome because if you don’t post about it then did it really happen?
