The Mindful Corner


Microsoftteams Image (7)

Over 75% of HSC students rate their stress as moderate or high, and 32.7% of HSC students have been diagnosed or treated for stress in the last 12 months. In recognition and response to the challenges of HSC students, the Office of Care and Civility created a wellbeing space named “The Mindful Corner” in 2023.

While HSC has a variety of excellent laboratories and academic spaces, The Mindful Corner was designed as a space where students can relax and destress. The Mindful Corner incorporates elements commonly found in sensory rooms such as soft seating and user-adjustable lighting and sound. The Mindful Corner features a whiteboard “Affirmation Wall” where students can express their creativity in providing uplifting messages for one another and sharing illustrations. In addition, The Mindful Corner hosts a variety of fidget toys and relaxing activities like puzzles and coloring pages.

Multiple groups of students were consulted in both the creation and naming of The Mindful Corner. Additionally, the Office of Care and Civility consulted with the Office of Disability Access to ensure the space meets is accessible and encourages wellbeing for neurodivergent students. The Mindful Corner is is located in room 106 of the Founders Activity Center and open during FAC hours beginning in September of 2023. For inquiries related to The Mindful Corner, please email



Virtual Relaxation Room


The purpose of the virtual relaxation room is to provide a virtual space where students, faculty and staff can take a moment to relax and de-stress. Mindful relaxation can reduce stress, improve mood and promote productivity. We encourage you to explore some of the activities in the virtual relaxation room to experience these benefits for yourself.
