The Be Well Hut is a peer health outreach program. Our team of students encourage healthy living, one button at a time! The Hutters as they are affectionally known lead activities and discuss topics developed around the 9 dimensions of wellness and are specific to college student lives. The hut can be found on the concourse Tuesday-Thursday from 10AM-2PM.

Who do I contact if I need to miss a shift?
Tyla Wicks (email@example.com)
What do if I miss a shift?
Email Tyla with the time and date of the shift you are missing, the reason for missing (be specific!), and how/when you are going to make up your shift.
What are my options for making up a shift?
Make buttons for an hour or attend another shift on top of your weekly shift
Who do I email if I have a conflict with my shift time?
Joseph Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
How many absences can I have?
You are allowed ONE study skip and TWO unexcused absences. Excused absences will be monitored and if they become excessive you will be contacted. After the first unexcused absence, you will be sent a warning.
What is considered an unexcused absence?
An absence is considered unexcused if you do not email ahead of your shift, if you do not provide a legitimate reason for missing, or if you do not email at all.
Do I have to make up a Study Skip?
No, we understand that you are first and foremost a student and sometimes school is more important. Study skips are considered a one “free pass”.
If it is my team week and I miss my shift, how many make up hours do I have to do?
You must complete one make up hour for missing the concourse hour on top of your mandatory one hour for your team week. So, you would have to make buttons for 2 hours that week or attend a different shift and make buttons for one hour.
Do I only have to make buttons for my team’s week?
No, you are not required to make buttons outside of your team week and make-ups, but it is highly encouraged to help out as much as possible. We keep track of who make extra effort to help out with the hut, and your dedication will be recognized.
What do I say if someone asks how to join the hut team?
Tell them that applications are accepted at the end of each semester for admittance the following semester. Spring 2018 applications will open in late November/early December.
Do I have to reapply for the hut every semester?
No, current members will be asked about re-commitment towards the end of the semester. However, we do keep track of absences and review membership of those who have not shown a commitment to the hut throughout the semester.
