Wellness @ SU Launch October 24, 2012
Some 200 faculty and staff came out on a warm and sunny October afternoon for the launch of Wellness @ SU. Many joined in a healthy walk around campus led by Provost Diane Allen, while others watched yoga demonstrations, enjoyed free massages and healthy snacks, signed up for a running/cycling challenge, and participated in a weight-lifting competition.
All attendees had the opportunity to register for raffle prize baskets, featuring a variety of health and wellness products and SU gear. Winners included: Diane Allen, Lisa Ball, Melissa Boog, Lavern Crosell, Wendy Denny, Susan Fineagan, Jenny Howard, Monika Lupean, Diana Mitchell, Melinda Munn
and Jason Rhodes.
Cashier's Office Supervisor Michelle Malone also won an iPad, which was raffled off to those who donated at least $5 to the Maryland Charities Campaign. Free giveaways included bright orange Wellness T-shirts, as well as pedometers, toothbrushes and literature on a variety of health topics.
Inspired by President Janet Dudley-Eshbach's campus consortium discussions, Wellness @ SU will be an ongoing initiative to offer resources and encourage the SU community to adopt healthier lifestyles. For more information, visit
