Wellness Week

Nov. 28 – Dec. 2, 2022

Wellness programs are good at helping people adopt and maintain healthy behaviors.

We hope to provide you with a myriad of skills, motivation, and social support, to remind you that sustaining healthy behaviors are beneficial and important as law school can be stressful, not only during exams, but through the year.

Check out several things - both on campus and on your own – that you can do to help maintain a healthy school/life balance.  Remember, we are here for you and thinking of you - now and throughout your time with us!

Support is Always Here

Law school can be a very stressful period. So whether it's our Student Affairs or UB's Counseling Services, there are services and people here to help you.

Visit Counseling Services at the Law School to discover services are available to law students, such as UB Counseling Services (UBCS), Buffalo-area community services, and external resources.

Brought to you in part by the Erie County Bar Foundation, Bar Association of Erie County, Women's Bar Association of Western New York, Minority Bar Association of Wester New York, & Phillips Lytle.

SBA Daily Gift Card Giveaway

Wellness Week kicks off with a daily gift card giveaway! Brought to you by your mandatory student activity fees, each day SBA will be randomly selecting three lucky students - one per class - to win a gift card.  The winners will be announced on the Class Facebook Groups and SBA's Instagram @buffalolawsba.  At the end of the week, a recap of the winners will be posted on SIP.  If you are one of the winners, you will also receive an email from law-sba@buffalo.edu detailing how to pick up your prize.

Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate & Warm and Fuzzy Board

Be sure to stop by the Doran Student Lounge and grab a cup of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea all week long while supplies last.

  • Did you know that taking a big whiff of your morning coffee or tea before you drink it can be enough to help reduce your stress levels?

Please add words of affirmation and encouragement to the Warm and Fuzzy Board in the Doran Student Lounge and read/enjoy your classmates' positive thoughts!
