Student Life and Wellness: Active Body, Healthy Mind

Law school is challenging, and students spend a lot of time studying as they work towards earning a law degree. At Widener Law Commonwealth, we value fostering a work-life balance for students. We demonstrate our commitment to this focus on wellness by offering yoga sessions, meditation classes, visits from therapy dogs, and a variety of outdoor recreation activities that support students' overall well-being.
