The article presents a study on the effectiveness of wellness programs in universities in Turkey. The main objective of the study is to find out the variables which affect the spirituality and leisure subscales of wellness. The results show that when the frequency of physical exercise increases, spirituality and leisure subscale scores also increase. The frequency of alcohol consumption is importantly associated to spirituality and leisure subscale scores. Findings also reveal an important difference between the levels of religiosity and spirituality subscale scores of the students.
