Health and Wellness
CMU strives to support the holistic well being of all members of the community by promoting health and wellness through a variety of on-campus and off-campus resources and opportunities.
Please keep an eye out for specific dates and schedules for certain activities posted around campus.
Counselling and Spiritual Direction: Qualified personnel are available on campus all throughout the year, to help students with emotional distress, life questions/transitions, and spiritual matters. Click here for more information.
Community Gatherings: Community Gatherings occur every day of the week and provide opportunities for the CMU Community to meet regularly. Click here for more information.
Fitness room: Our on-campus fitness room is open to students and staff and is a great way to stay fit. Click here for more details.
Fitness Class: Fitness class happens every Wednesdays at 11:30AM to 12:15 PM in the Loewen Athletic Centre.
Athletics: CMU has Varisty teams in women's and men's Soccer, Volley, Basketball, and Futsal. Open try-outs occur every year in September during the Orientation days. Stay up to date on all the upcoming games here, and make sure to cheer on your Blazers!
Surrounding Area: CMU is a great location from which to go running, biking, walking, and cross-country skiing on trails throughout the Assiniboine Forest. The Assiniboine Park, with its zoo, sculpture garden, and duck pond (ice skating in the winter), is just a 20 minute walk away. CMU also has cross-country skis and an outdoor skating rink for students' use throughout the winter.
Floor Meetings and Testimony/Check-Ins: Residence Assistants are responsible to plan floor meetings and often incorporate wellness check-ins as well as a spiritual component. Many floors conduct "Testimony Tuesday"—an opportunity for each person on the floor to share their testimony and pray for others. Not only does this build community, but it also facilitates deeper social and spiritual connections.
Church Connections: CMU facilitates opportunities for students to check out other churches in the city.
Wellness Week: During the last week of January, Student Life organizes an entire week of activities for students to learn more about and to practice holistic wellness.
