On Feb. 15th, the University of Lynchburg hosted its first of five wellness days for students to replace spring break which has been cancelled because of COVID.
The University hopes to mitigate the spread of COVID by decreasing the possibility of student travel over the break. Wellness days are supposed to give students an opportunity to relax and to take a break from academic studies.
The University organized spiritual and physical activities to participate in throughout the day.
Junior Keturah Forbes said, “I think it is a good idea but for people that have jobs on campus they don’t have a free day so the wellness day is not particularly ideal for them.”
