Duck Nest

Duck Nest

A place to find your balance.

Welcome to college. Welcome to new friends, new memories, and some of the best years of your life. But wait—that’s not all. Welcome to midterms, late nights, dead weeks, and stress. But fear not—there’s a place you can go to get away, take a break, and maybe learn something too. Welcome to the Duck Nest.

 
 

 

Promoting Self-Care and Balance

The Duck Nest helps you develop self-care and life-balance strategies related to stress, nutrition, physical activity, and general wellness. Our center is staffed by Peer Wellness Advocates that understand the challenges facing college students.
