Student Wellness

Updated: Jan 23

The pace of a student is dynamically moving from parking lot to classroom, library to student center, back and forth again and again. This is the ebb and flow of life while pursuing academic goals.


At FRCC we want our students to grow, learn and create a life that is balanced with activities that include personal health and wellness. To make it easier and more convenient for students to create a balanced life our campus community offers events, classes, clubs and activities that focus on personal growth, health, fitness, stress management, socializing and having fun.
