Consistent with the Saint Joseph’s Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, the care of the whole person, the mission of student wellness is served by the provision of high quality health care. The Student Health Center strives to assist students in the pursuit of their academic goals and personal developments by identifying and addressing health situations that may impede student learning.
At Saint Joseph’s University we work to reinforce the educational mission that emphasizes the whole person – including spirit, mind, and body. The Office of Student Life organizes a number of fitness programs and group exercise classes available to students. The O’Pake Recreation Center is open daily, featuring a 25-meter indoor pool and a fitness center with the latest cardio and strength equipment. The fitness center is located on the Maguire Campus side of campus. This center, offers various athletic and recreation facilities in addition to specialized classes and activities.
A satellite fitness center is also located in the Hagan Arena, along with smaller fitness centers in many of the freshmen dormitories - promoting and advancing healthy lifestyle choices all around campus.
