Staying healthy is key to the success of any ACAD student - and this includes keeping up with activities outside the studio - from intramurals to spiritual clubs and facilities. To keep our students healthy and well, ACAD provides a variety of student services geared toward making a student's experience on campus one that is positive and productive.
Student health is about more than making sure you get your flu shot each year. For our students, it’s about staying in shape, keeping active, making sure you have the support needed, and caring for your self physically, emotionally and spiritually. To keep our students healthy and well, ACAD provides a variety of student services geared toward making a student's experience on campus one that is positive, productive and intensive.
Health and Wellness Services at ACAD include:
ACAD students are able to access these services throughout the academic year, and we encourage students in every year of study to take advantage of our onsite counseling and support.
Being an art and design student doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete too! ACAD students have access to some of the best sports facilities in the province through our partners at SAIT. Whether it’s intramurals you’re looking for, a chance to workout or even an athletics scholarship, you’ll find it here.
The mission of ACAD’s Student Counseling services is to help students in meeting their emotional, psychological and mental health needs so that they can pursue their studies and excel during their time in our studios. Appointments can be booked by students throughout the year – our counselors are here to help.
