Nutrition Coaching

Nutrition Coaching is a free, confidential service offered through a collaboration between the KSC Dietetic Internship Program and the Center for Health & Wellness. Nutrition Coaches, who consist of Keene State College Dietetic Interns, offer an initial 15-20 minute goal setting session and 45-60 minute follow up coaching sessions as desired where individualized nutrition education can be provided. Nutrition Coaches will help motivate and enable KSC students toward reaching their personal nutrition and wellness goals.

Peer Education Internships

Peer Education Interns are students leaders who promote healthy behaviors at KSC. Our team consists of undergraduate interns from the Health Science and Graphic Design Departments. Our interns are Nationally Certified Peer Educators through The BACCHUS Network, a peer education initiative through NASPA Students Affairs Professionals in Higher Education. The BACCHUS Network supports academic and personal success by building skills in student leaders to address campus health and safety issues. CPEs encourage students to make healthy choices, become active leaders, and engaged citizens in the community.
