Going off to college signals a time of newfound independence for young adults, who are suddenly able to make their own choices about what they eat and how much activity they get – or don’t get. But college and university students, faculty and staff now find themselves in healthier environments thanks to the work being done by PHA partners like Liberty University
On May 19, 2016, Liberty University joined 43 other college or university campuses across the nation to team up with PHA for the Healthier Campus Initiative. This initiative was developed in an effort to help make campuses healthier by adopting guidelines around nutrition, physical activity and programming. With more than 14,000 students and approximately 6,000 members of the faculty and staff, these changes will help encourage healthier options among the more than 20,000 individuals on campus each year.
