Health & Well-Being

When you enroll at Saint Joseph’s, you’re getting so much more than a four-year education. You’re also signing up for comprehensive, thoughtfully designed mental health and well-being resources that cater to every student’s physical, mental and emotional needs. 

Fitness & Recreation

Looking for a way to stay healthy and active between classes? Check out our fun, dynamic array of fitness classes, from barre to Zumba. Or engage in some friendly competition by signing up for club sports and intramural athletics. 

Student Health Center

Our Student Health Center staff treats every patient with respect and equality. Every student gets unlimited visits to take advantage of health and wellness services ranging from strep throat treatment to sprained ankle care.

Start Off on the Right Foot

Starting a new school can be nerve-wracking. We’re committed to making your transition fun and easy with social events and community service opportunities designed to break the ice and show what it means to be a Hawk.

Our early arrival programs help incoming freshmen make the leap from high school to college life. Events and activities include immersive service opportunities, mentorship and presentations by special-interest student groups.

Saint Joseph’s students have each other’s back. Our SOAR (Students Offering Advice and Resources) program connects freshmen with upperclassmen for valuable, lasting mentorships.
