What is Rowan Thrive?

Wherever you come from and wherever you plan to go, life in a University community will be like the rest of life: full of choices, opportunities and challenges. What might surprise you is that you can thrive, no matter what's going on around you—at Rowan and in the rest of life—when you make well-being a way of life.

Well-being means something different to everyone, but in general, it's the sense of feeling good about you and your place in the world. It goes beyond classroom and career. It’s really about reflecting on each person’s way to be well and use healthy solutions when we encounter life’s 3 Ts:

  • Transitions: Planned and unplanned changes in life like transitioning from high school to college, transferring to Rowan, to changes of semesters and transitions to summer or winter breaks;
  • Triumphs: Reflecting on high points in life and to cherish them and keep them close when you are not feeling great;
  • Tragedies or trauma: Situations where you have to bounce back including dealing with grief, health concerns, major mental health situations, where you have to personalize a healthy option to learn and grow from it.

Rowan Thrive is our community's commitment to help each person cultivate well-being throughout life's journey of highs and lows. It is a toolkit for developing a mindset, actions and behaviors that will help you build a life of purpose, resilience and engagement. Rowan Thrive is designed to help you live according to your values, maximize your potential and find your best self.
