Health & Well Being
It is often said that healthy mind lives in a healthy body! Hence, at KEC we ensure that your sojourn with us is pleasant and healthy. However, life is rarely that simple and it’s very likely that our scholars may encounter a few health issues, welfare or other kinds of difficulties during this time. For many of them this could be a period of transitions: from youth to adulthood; from school to college; from home life to campus life; from elsewhere to KEC; and towards independent responsibility.
Psychological well-being problems have become increasingly common among college students nowadays, especially undergraduate students who are prone to psychological problems. For young people beginning studies, this is usually a very positive, exciting and fun period. However, it is perfectly normal to also feel demanding, disorientating, tiring and difficult at times. There might also be times, when you need some kind of further help hence, like all respectable colleges, KEC takes students’ health and welfare seriously and provides a range of facilities and services.
a) Personal Responsibility & Partnership
We all are individually responsible for our own personal wellbeing.
We all are individually responsible for our own personal well-being. Yet, this can be challenging for the ones who hail from a supportive home environment, and the transition to independence might take some time. However, it is an important and inevitable phase of emerging adulthood and it’s highly crucial at this stage to accept this responsibility thereby, making it part of your life.
Of course, while our own well-being is our personal responsibility, yet KEC is the willing partner in achieving and maintaining it. For this to be truly effective, students must demonstrate the kind of personal responsibility which allows them to take up the support on offer, or call for extra support as and when needed.

Being at college usually means going through several changes, some of which can be demanding on you both physically and mentally. Arriving in a new city and starting a new course of study is exciting, but it might also feel daunting and unfamiliar. In itself, this is perfectly normal and should be expected – after all, the whole idea is to step outside your comfort zone and extend your capacity for work and life.Wherever you're from, take some time to settle in, participate in activities, make friends and be sure to look out for each other, yourself and your welfare so that you stay happy and healthy, and get the most out of your time at KEC.
