Presentation Topics

General Wellness

College can be a pivotal time for developing health behaviors that foster students’ overall health and well-being. This presentation shares tips and resources for supporting your general health at The Capstone and provides a brief overview of the services from the Dept. of Health Promotion and Wellness.

Eating Disorders/Body Image

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental health condition and body image issues continue to be rampant with the existence of social media. This presentation will discuss what it means to have a healthy body image and how to determine if you have a healthy relationship with food.


Eating healthy and affordably can be easier said than done. This program covers foundational nutrition knowledge to help college students succeed in eating for their overall health and well-being. 

Financial Wellness

Budgets, Saving, and Credit, Oh My! This presentation focuses on educating about these important topics and promoting lifelong financial wellness. 

Alcohol Misuse

The “Know Your BAC” program is designed to teach students about the common misperceptions of alcohol use. The program focuses on increasing student awareness of how they are measuring the alcohol in their drinks, the significance of knowing their Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level, and the signs and symptoms of alcohol poisoning.

Sexual Health

STI Prevention: There are nearly 26 million new cases of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the US each year. Over half of these infections will be in young people aged 18 – 24 years old. In this presentation, we will discuss STIs, STI prevention, barrier methods, and communication skills for talking to your partner, as well as campus and local resources.

Healthy Relationships

Healthy Relationships: Managing relationships can be a difficult skill to cultivate. In this presentation, we will define the characteristics of a healthy relationship and help cultivate the skills necessary to identify the signs of an unhealthy relationship. Participants will also learn to navigate difficult conversations and set boundaries. 

Mindful Eating

Is your mind full or are you mindful while eating? This one hour presentation reviews the benefits and components of mindful eating and walks participants through a mindful eating experience with a small food item.  

Wellness Walk

Pulling from the research based in forest bathing and mindfulness, this program was developed to encourage participants to incorporate stress management into their daily lives. Research shows that spending a small amount of time in nature can positively impact one’s health. Couple that research with mindfulness practices and a simple guided 30-minute walk can be a nice boost to your day. The walk will include a stroll around campus and incorporate breathing exercises and focus on the beautiful natural surroundings of campus. A 10-minute presentation introduces these concepts and kicks off the walk. 

Labyrinth Walk

Labyrinths have been used for centuries as a way of walking meditation. While labyrinths may look like a maze, there is only one way in and one way out. These ancient archetypes have been used in spiritual settings but belong to no one faith. Join us as we teach students about a form of walking meditation to calm the mind and reduce stress. **Due to the labyrinth size, particular rooms on campus will need to be reserved and may affect availability, please submit your request, and a staff member will verify room availability for your request.**
