McLeod Tyler Wellness Center Exterior

The McLeod Tyler Wellness Center houses the Office of Health Promotion, Counseling Center, Campus Recreation’s Wellness programming and the Center for Mindfulness and Authentic Excellence. The goal of this facility is to inspire students to take accountability for their health by actively seeking activities and methods that invigorate the mind and body. The McLeod Tyler Wellness Center will impact the student-life experience by providing the resources necessary for students to establish a foundation of life-long wholesome living.

The Wellness Center is a safe, inviting and modern addition to a campus traditionally influenced by Georgian architecture. Our design incorporates brick and natural stone to complement its neighboring buildings and pay homage to the college’s roots. The facility resides in nature and is accompanied by a naturally flowing stream of water. Warm light floods into the space byway of expansive glazing and sections of curtainwall that provide a contemporary finish and peak into indoor activities.
