Healthy Relationships

Relationships aren’t always easy to maintain. College opens the door for all kinds of new relationship challenges like roommate issues, casual dating, serious dating, friendships, and sex.

You may also be confronted by interpersonal issues when you play on an intramural team, become involved in a student organization, or decide to join Greek life.

These relationships can provide a great deal of comfort and support during your college years, but they can also be a source of confusion and stress at times. How do you keep the lines of communication open so that you can maintain strong, honest, and respectful relationships?

Qualities of a healthy relationship

  • Mutual respect. Respect means that each person values who the other is and understands the other person’s boundaries.
  • Trust. Partners should place trust in each other and give each other the benefit of the doubt.
  • Honesty
  • Compromise
  • Good communication
  • Anger control

The Wellness Center at Whisler Hall offers programs on healthy relationships are aimed at raising awareness of the warning signs of physical, verbal and emotional relationship abuse. We want to generate awareness of campus and community resources for students experiencing relationship abuse.
