The Graduate School and Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) are pleased to invite all graduate and professional students (GAPS) to the Spring Wellness Festival — a well-being event specifically designed for graduate and professional students. Join us at the Carolina Student Union on Tuesday, February 6 from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM for a day of relaxation, rejuvenation, and community.

This event will feature 7+ unique wellbeing experiences tailored to the needs of GAPS, including:

Students gather around a labrador retriever therapy dog. The dog looks happy with its tail wagging as several students pet its head and back. Another nearby dog sniffs a students backpack.

You are encouraged to register for this event to ensure accurate headcount for food and drinks, and registration is required for a free massage. If you register for a massage and/or yoga but are unable to make it, please cancel your registration to allow other students to sign up. A printed waiver for the free massages will be available to sign at the event.
