The Wellness Value of Campus Landscapes


  • Sydnie Erlendson University of Lethbridge


As part of the Campus Ecology Project at the University of Lethbridge, a twenty question online survey was administered to 265 students in Psychology 1000 or select Psychology 2000 level courses, who attend the campus. The students answered anonymously, and provided insight into their interactions with different plant and animal species that exist on the University of Lethbridge campus. This 10-20 minute survey gathered information about how landscapes and ecology affect and improve an individual’s experience on campus. The survey also attempted to gain insight about how individuals feel about allocating funds towards ecology on campus, and the protection of potentially endangered species. Lastly, students were given the opportunity to indicate any ways in which they felt that the University of Lethbridge campus could better promote wellness for it’s visitors.
