Wellness Center hosts annual Heart Hunt
From the Wellness Center
Saturday, Feb. 14 is Valentine’s Day, which means it is time for the Wellness Center’s Heart Hunt. As part of promoting healthy relationships, a wooden heart is hidden somewhere on the UST campus. Find the heart and win a date for two (two movie tickets and a gift card to a local restaurant).
The Heart Hunt is open to all current St. Thomas students. The rules are just like the Heritage Week Treasure Hunt: The wooden heart will be hidden on the St. Paul campus. A new clue will be published each weekday, beginning today, Feb. 9, in Bulletin Today. You do not need to tip, dismantle, or otherwise wreck anything to find the treasure. Please be kind to the campus during your hunt. To win, you must find the wooden heart and return it to the Wellness Center, located in the lower level of Koch Commons.
E-mail the Wellness Center or stop by the Wellness office.
Good luck and happy hunting!

Healthy Relationship Tip No. 1
So what's healthy and what's unhealthy? How do we make sure we get what we deserve in both friendships and romantic relationships? Well, it starts with four basic principles:
- RESPECT. When two people are in a relationship, there should be mutual respect for each person as an individual, and for the joy that is created when they come together. A healthy partnership means learning about the other person and valuing what is important to him or her.
- HONESTY. Most people would agree that honesty is crucial to any relationship. At the same time, true honesty about our thoughts and feelings about what we want to happen in the relationship is a challenge to accomplish.
- TRUST. Trust means you can count on each other and that the other person will be there for you. Trust doesn't come easy and, for most people, needs to be earned over time.
- COMMUNICATION. Communication is critical to the other three ingredients. It is how we show our respect, honesty and trust. Listening to others and really "hearing them," so we respond and follow through on what they are requesting, is a sign of a strong relationship.
