As college students, it is important to maintain a healthy body and mind. Here are some of the ways we recommend incorporating healthy habits with on-campus resources.
Eat wisely to maximize your health. Eat a variety of foods including vegetables, fruits and whole grains. It is important to include fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products in your diet, and limit total salt, fat, sugar, and alcohol.
For a one-on-one consultation on any dietary restrictions or needs regarding our on-campus facilities, please contact Jason Wolverton from Dining Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Also, check out our PHE page about healthy snacks, serving sizes, and other nutrition tips.
Strive for a healthy weight. If you need to lose weight, losing even a little will help. If you are at a healthy weight, maintain it. Staying in control of your weight helps you be healthy now and in the future.
At SVSU, our Campus Recreation Center offers personal training and a wellness program called Fit Into College. For more information, please visit their website.
Be Physically Active
Avoid inactivity. Some activity is better than none. Aim for at least 2 1/2 hours of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. Every 10 minute session counts! Do strengthening activities at least 2 days each week.
At SVSU, our Campus Recreation Center is free for SVSU students to use. All you need is your student ID. Check out the Campus Recreation website for more information about intramurals, club sports, and fitness classes which are designed to be low cost and for all fitness levels.
