World of Fitness
The World of Fitness is designed for incoming freshmen
from any area of study, interested in developing or maintaining a physically active lifestyle.
As a member of the World of Fitness you will live with other incoming freshmen who share your interest in nutrition and physical activity. Living with other freshmen who have similar goals and interests means you will have a supportive network of peers right from the start. You can study together and attend social and co-curricular programming together. Friendships form quickly in L-LCs!
The World of Fitness will take some courses together in the fall and spring semesters of freshman year, and attend fitness and nutrition themed events together.
