When students go to college, knowledge is not the only thing that is gained. The myth of the freshman 15 may not be a myth after all. Students are so caught up in their studies and activities, they don’t really choose what we would consider “healthy” food. Fortunately, for USU Eastern students, Jan Thornton, director of student success, has set up a web magazine specifically for the health and wellness of the students.
The magazine is Student Health 101 and can be accessed online for the main page. To access the magazine go to www.ceu.edu/scs, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link “Student Issue.” From there students will be able to view the magazine. There is also a “Parent Issue” available.
Each month Karli Morris, the campus correspondent for the magazine, will be interviewing 10-12 students attending USU Eastern. All of the interviews will be video recordings. These interviews will be published and other students will be able to get advice from their fellow students on the health topic of the month.
Thorton says there will be six pages that can be customized for USU Eastern faculty and staff members and students to publish articles, interviews and ads in the magazine.
When students and staff submit anything for publication to the magazine, it will be published on one of these six pages that can be customized pages. Students are able to access the magazine by going to the website listed before. This months issue deals with stress. On Thursday March 29, the campus is having a stress-relief day for USU Eastern students. Massage chairs and stress tips start at 9 a.m. and a midnight breakfast starts at 10 p.m. which is available for all students.
Also available in the magazine are the features of the bulletin, Ucook book, fitnessU, super foods, stress, tatoos, unplugging, job hunting, students in action, and upset stomach.
