Weight Watchers on Campus

Since June of 2012, faculty, staff, and students from all over campus have been meeting in the Walk Room in the Engineering Lab Annex on Wednesdays. Weigh‐in is at 11:30 a.m. followed by a meeting at noon which ends promptly at 12:30 p.m. These dedicated members have made small, sustainable lifestyle changes that have helped them move closer to a personal goal. Collectively the group has lost 500+ pounds. To find out how you, too, can feel healthier, contact Ellen Stevens at 225-341-0162 for program details.
