SHAC (Student Health Awareness Club)
SHAC is a student club that consists of a motivated group of students who are interested in promoting college health. We help organize fun health activities on campus and act as a liaison between the health center and the student body. We encourage others to lead healthy lifestyles and set examples of positive health behaviors. If you like to meet new people, gain volunteer experience and learn new skills, then SHAC might just be the club for you! The membership is FREE. To become a SHAC member please email SHAC club president Michelle Ferguson.
