Health, Wellness and Fitness

SUNY Oswego offers support services, activities and programs that promote health, wellness and fitness to meet the dynamic needs of our students, faculty and staff.

Physical and Mental Health
Available resources for medical and health issues include trained physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants housed in Walker Health Center. The Counseling Services Center, also in Walker, offers trained counselors for students who need attention.

Wellness and Education
Healthy choices are an integral part of the college experience. Located in Walker, the LifeStyles Center provides education, awareness and support in areas that include general wellness, sexual health, alcohol and other drugs, and violence prevention.

Physical Fitness
All members of our college community may subscribe to a membership at our two resident fitness centers. We also offer an extensive intramural program that boasts over 4,000 participants each year in a wide selection of sport leagues and tournaments. Additionally, students can join one of Oswego’s many club sports to remain physically active within their busy schedules.

Student Involvement
Students are very involved in assuring wellness on campus. They serve as peer educators to help their classmates make healthy choices. Student organizations like SAVAC, the first student-run ambulance corps in the country, and the college's Red Cross Club actively work to promote campus wellness.
