Monday, March 20 – Friday, April 28

Happy Spring, Mason Nation! Please join us for one of the many (over 100!) well-being events happening across Mason that are part of this year’s Spring into Well-Being celebration.

Spring into Well-Being (SIWB) celebrates the Mason community’s commitment to well-being by highlighting awareness and educational programs and events hosted by units, departments, and student organizations across the University. Together they help support Mason’s strategic goal of becoming a well-being university. This year’s Spring Into Well-Being programming will run from Monday, March 20 – Friday, April 28.
