HEALTH, WELLNESS AND RECREATION
Georgia Perimeter College Health, Wellness & Recreation Department is your pathway
to better health. As a student, you invest time, effort and financial resources towards
attaining your educational goals. GPC HWR fully supports your academic endeavors.
GPC HWR believes it is just as important for students to invest time and effort in their
physical, emotional and social development as well as in their academic achievement.
Today, it is more important that students maintain a healthy balance between academics,
work and family. Statistics show the leading causes of disease and death can be
significantly reduced by maintaining proper nutrition, maintaining a consistent exercise
program and addressing mental/emotional health issues. Heart attacks, diabetes,
strokes, obesity and many forms of cancer prematurely end lives every day taking away
valuable human and financial resources from our communities. In order to counteract
these negative effects, HWR events, programs and activities focus on providing students
opportunities for physical activity, wellness education, intramural sports competition and
exposure to lifelong learning activities.
The Student Activity Fee allows access to programs and resources that empower students
to achieve their optimal level of mental, emotional and physical health. Students may
participate in a variety of free wellness activities on and off campus; HIV/STD testing/
counseling, health screenings, stress reduction activities, campus walks, health fairs,
exercise incentive programs, nutritional educational programs, outdoor wellness
programs, fitness classes and intramural sports.
Each GPC campus provides recreational and intramural programs for currently enrolled
students, faculty and staff. Hours of operation, open recreation rules, procedures, cost of
participation and other pertinent information may be obtained from each campus Health
