Intellectual wellness focuses in creating opportunities that are mentally and creatively stimulating. These opportunities allow new learning opportunities not just inside the classroom, but outside as well. Intellectual wellness activities should expand your knowledge and expose you to new experiences and opportunities. These experiences allow you to learn, and reflect on new information that can be transferred to your professional and personal life. BCM and BCM LIFE ensure that you are experiencing intellectually rewarding opportunities inside and outside the classroom.
