Queen's Engineering is pleased to the return of Queen’s Engineering Wellness Week, running from November 14-18, 2022. This week-long initiative is specially designed for Engineering students. The focus of this semester’s Wellness Week is reintroducing students to the support services they have access to that they might not be familiar with, or have forgotten about along the way.

Throughout Wellness Week, the Queen’s Engineering Student Services team will be handing out care packages to students, and has also planned an exciting roster of daily events. Specifics, including locations, times and registration links, will be sent directly to students via email.

St. John Ambulance presents:
Therapy Dog Study Paws
As part of ongoing efforts to support student mental health, Queen’s Engineering welcomes the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dogs program to Beamish-Munro Hall! Come out and enjoy snuggling up to one of these beautiful animals!
Trained to be gentle and friendly, therapy dogs are patient and accepting with strangers who pet and hug them. They support a person’s mental health by creating a warm and relaxing atmosphere of comfort. Studies have shown that interaction with these lovely dogs can increase mood-elevating hormones, and thereby reduce stress.
