Student Wellness Ambassadors

Student Wellness Ambassadors

The Student Wellness Ambassadors (SWA) work collaboratively to inform students a variety of student well-being topics ranging from alcohol & other drug prevention, stress reduction, healthy sleep habits and more to promote safe and responsible lifestyle decisions. This is a group of highly motivated and well-trained students who organize educational programs across campus and throughout Central KY. SWA believes that students have the right to make their own decisions and that they are here to provide quality, research-based information.
