The Student Wellness Ambassador Team is a registered student organization striving to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles to Illinois State University and the local community through a variety of programs and services.
SWAT members are a group of Illinois State University student volunteers from all majors with diverse backgrounds. They are trained by Health Promotion and Wellness staff to promote and talk to fellow students about a variety of health issues. They conduct interactive and educational workshops, assist with campus and community outreach projects, and help staff the "G Spot"--a portable gazebo that is set up around campus and provides health information and resources. Members attend a weekend training retreat and weekly training sessions during the fall and/or spring to learn the latest information and research on health issues.
Greek houses, residence halls, and classrooms are some of the hosts for audiences who participate in entertaining and educational activities.
Note: Please keep in mind as you register for classes that SWAT meetings are every Wednesday from 3 - 4:30 P.M.
