Environmental Wellbeing

What it's all about: Creating good health by occupying safe, stimulating, and sustainable environments

Some questions to ask yourself to gauge your Environmental Wellbeing:

  • Do I generally feel safe in the environments in which I live, work and go to school?
  • Do I generally feel that I have control over my safety?
  • Am I aware of human impact on the environment?
  • Do I recycle, reduce and reuse?
  • Do I engage in environmentally friendly behaviors (turn off lights/faucets, walk or bike)?
  • Do I take time to appreciate my surroundings?
  • Do I find time to spend outdoors in nature?

Want to increase your Environmental Wellbeing?

Here are a few suggestions and resources:

  • If you don’t feel safe on campus, contact the SCC College Police.
  • Schedule an appointment with one of the SCC Counseling Faculty members if you don’t feel safe at home or in a relationship. (If you are in immediate danger call 911!)
  • Take advantage of our beautiful surroundings by spending time outside on campus!
  • Check out the Center for Native and Urban Wildlife on campus.
  • Stick to reusable water bottles (bonus for glass or stainless steel!)
  • When possible, eat local.
  • Turn it off. Whether it’s a faucet while you’re brushing your teeth or the TV when you leave the room, if you aren’t using something turn it off.
  • Make your travel environmentally friendly. When possible walk, ride your bike, or take public transportation.
  • Use reusable shopping bags.
  • Surround yourself with positive people who support your goals.
  • Sign up for campus emergency alerts.
