A Community for Continuing Students
In Fall 2009, we started a Living Learning Community called "Health & Fitness." The community was going well and attracted students with many interests and personalities. Students joined from dance, athletic training, health science, nursing, physical education, and sport management, to name a few - plus there were students who were just interested in living a healthy lifestyle. Because of high interest, the Health & Fitness LLC will move to Mortimer hall and house returning and transfer students with these interests/majors.
The Health & Fitness Living Learning Community is designed for returning and high-credit transfer students who want to live a healthy, fitness-focused lifestyle and will have access to the Mortimer Health Club. They can be major-related or just adventure enthusiasts who might enjoy intramural sports or seeing local teams play (like the Rochester Americans or Rhinos). Related Health & Fitness academic programs might include:
- Recreation & Leisure
- Physical Education (Teacher Cert)
- Athletic Training
- Sport Management
Our students have enjoyed many adventurous activities such as:
- Tandem biking on the canal
- Rockventures Rockclimbing
- Kayaking in Braddock Bay
- Snow Tubing
- Finess Challenges/Competitions
- Attending dance performances
Students went rock climbing at Rockventures, an indoor climbing facility in Rochester.
Dr. Lauren Lieberman took students on a five mile bike ride to Holley Falls along the Erie Canal. Many students rode tandem bikes for the first time!
