World of Well-being and Fitness

The World of Well-being and Fitness is designed for incoming freshmen from any area of study interested in developing or maintaining healthy habits in mind and body while in college. Students in this community live and take classes with other freshmen who share these interests, and participate in co-curricular activities intended to introduce them to the expectations of college life and the challenges of maintaining a healthy lifestyle away from home.
