Social wellbeing is the result of our positive and regular interactions with others in a variety of settings. Studies have shown that development and sustenance of our relationships is vital to happiness.

Contrary to pop-culture-fueled perceptions, social interaction isn’t just for kids anymore. In fact, the older you are, the more you need it.

Below is the Arnett and Buckley “Top 10 Ways to Get Social at WFU” where faculty and staff can enjoy some time with each other and with students. Think about your top 10 and get busy being social.
