Are you interested in a weight loss support group?

The weight-loss support group is in progress. The support group provides a nonprofessional arena for individuals to share weight-loss secrets, healthy recipes, fitness plans, etc. and provide camaraderie to fellow University employees seeking to gain a healthy lifestyle. Staff members interested in participating are encouraged to contact Linda Jepsen, Staff Council President or Kate O'Brien, Athletic Academic Advising.

Meetings are now colocated at Loop and Lincoln Park! All meetings go from noon to 1 pm; feel free to bring your lunch.

We look forward to sharing our ideas and hearing yours as we come together to promote a healthy university.

Deployed Loved Ones Community Group

The Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs office will be continuing the community group for staff and students who currently have or have had loved ones deployed. Please contact the Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs office for more information.
