WELLBEING

KY aims to provide the best student experience possible for our members. Our goal is that everyone feels welcomed in our community and that our students can thrive without having to worry about concerns regarding student life. However, sometimes student life can also include struggles, whether it is with managing your time and energy in the middle of all the responsibilities, finding your group of friends or something else.

BeWell

BeWell, KY's new wellbeing program was created in 2019 as a response to the challenges our members face in their wellbeing. With this program KY aims to create an open and transparent environment and make the discussion about difficult topics easier.
