Creating a campus culture that prioritizes individual well-being and community health

BTW peer leaders educate and empower students to prioritize well-being and practice healthy decision making around substance use, stress management, nutrition, fitness, body image, mental health and social connectedness. BTW works to increase access and strengthen connections between students and campus resources. Through workshops, training and communications, BTW strives to enhance the student experience at Brandeis for all.

BTW After Hours

BTW After Hours

A new initiative launching fall 2024!

The purpose of BTW After Hours is to bring health education to student clubs, organizations, and teams. BTW After Hours events are a collaborative effort between BTW and the sponsoring organization. They provide an opportunity for that group to choose and explore a health topic relevant to its members. These events can be hosted in the Oasis Wellness Lounge or wherever the organization regularly meets. 

The Process

  1. Leaders of the student club, organization, or team will request a BTW After Hours program by completing the interest form (below). Please submit your form at least 2 weeks in advance of the intended event date.
  2. A BTW member will set up a quick consultation meeting with the group leaders to discuss the plan for the event. (Only after this consultation is a BTW After Hours request confirmed.)
  3. BTW members will facilitate a customized workshop for your group, primarily consisting of interactive activities/games and group discussion.
