What is CU Thrive?

The NASPA CU Thrive is a program built specifically for college students to help them explore, understand, and share their unique college experiences. Being a college student is unlike any other time in a student's life. New relationships, new living environments, new pressures and new expectations all contribute to the challenges they face every day. The NASPA CU Thrive program was developed to target these specific issues and to help students work through them, while creating a platform for students to share their own tips and techniques to help other students struggling with similar issues. Our program provides students the unique opportunity to engage their peers and inspire them to get involved with the emotional health, wellness, and resiliency issues that exist on campus, while helping to promote positive changes throughout the college and university community.

CU Thrive Mission

The mission of CU Thrive is to strengthen the ability for students to thrive during their college or university experience by providing the knowledge, skills, community, and connection they need to cope with daily life issues. This program engages students to learn, share, and lead in a way that helps fosters resilience and enhance overall wellness and quality of life.

Program Highlights
  • WEBSITE: This program is built around a dynamic, peer-to-peer-focused website, where you can find articles, FAQs, assessments, training courses, and student submitted stories and videos to help you prepare for and deal with the unique issues you may face on or off campus.
  • SOCIAL MEDIA: This program uses a unique communications technology that allows you to easily develop friendships and engage your classmates and peers across multiple social-networking and communications platforms. You can form online groups, based on common interests, advocacy, special talents, etc. which can become another avenue to socialize, connect, and meet new people on campus or around your campus.
  • SUPPORT: This program provides you the knowledge and skills you need to support your friends when they are having trouble working through the issues that threaten their personal success. We all rely on our friends to help us through difficult times so why not provide all students the information and direction they need to make helpful and healthy help-seeking decisions?
