The School of Graduate Studies is excited to present the first-ever Grad Summer Wellness Series (SWS) running June through end of August 2021. The Summer Wellness Series is a series of interactive wellness events hosted by the School of Graduate Studies and partners across Queen's University & the Kingston community. The School of Graduate Studies has partnered with Sustainable Kingston, Grad Club, Queen's Hospitality Services, Earthhub Kingston, Queen's Athletics and Recreation (ARC), Queen's Student Wellness Services, and Sustainable Queen's to create the series.

The Summer Wellness Series was designed around the 6 Dimensions Of Wellness - Emotional, Physical, Spiritual, Social, Environmental, and Emotional. Throughout the summer months, there are events that fit across all domains of wellness created for graduate students wanting to expand their education on wellness and to gather resources to help during your studies as a graduate student and beyond. 



Goals of the Grad Summer Wellness Series:

  1. Create opportunities for graduate students to participate in interactive and educational wellness events.

  2. Prioritize wellness during the summer months of June-August. 

  3. Educate graduate students on the 6 dimensions of wellness and resources available throughout your studies and beyond.

  4. Connect students with each other and members of the School of Graduate Studies and across campus through events and the SWS Photo Contest.
