In the fall of
2010, Acadia students voted by way of referendum to contribute $30 dollars
annually ($15 per semester) per student to the Student Wellness Fund. The fund
was initiated to accommodate the individual needs of students and enhance their
overall sense of wellness through various initiatives. The primary initiative
for the fund was to partner with the University and create the present Fitness
Centre at the Acadia Athletic Complex. While this has promoted great
opportunities for students to enhance their physical wellbeing, the fund is also
designed to address a broad spectrum of wellness concerns.
